Been a crazy summer. With a one week exception, the grass has been growing fast enough to be mowed more that once a week. But it hasn’t :mrgreen:

Derechos cause more property damage around here than tornadoes ever have. But you get way more warning they’re coming. The homes on the west end of my sub(and beyond) have lost power again. Something like 3 times in 2 weeks. These are extended outages.

The important thing is when these natural events do happen we all chip in a help our neighbors

Anyway, there have always been tornados and even after the transition to green energy is complete there will continue to be tornados, hurricanes, storms, heavy rains, etc.

A satellite view showed the same results over a several mile path

For example my house looked like it was hit by a bomb but both of my neighbors who are less than 50-75’ away had no damage and barely a few branches in their yards

The force of straight winds tends to be more severe even though its destructive route is much narrower

My house survived a direct hit from "straight winds" a few years ago. Look it up but essentially straight winds is a tornado except the wind runs a very narrow path instead of a wide circular path.

Dave, I’m 58, there have been tornado’s as long as I’ve been alive. I’ve sat through many a severe storm and watched.

Armada was hit hard last night. I’ll be biking through there today but the path is a mile from downtown so I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to see.

Just showing how unprecedented this is
@ David Collins « Sun 8:45:32 am »
I live in Bloomfield Hills and I’ve actually never have had to do this in my entire life and I’m 17 years old so a bit of panic ensued

it doesn’t matter it could have been rain wrapped
