We had a storm blow through this afternoon. A little rain, no hail, but a lot of wind.



I had bought the trailer (which had already been laid over on its right side) a couple of months ago to use for storage. We have a spot next to the shop/machine shed cleared off to park the trailer where it will be behind the shelter belt and into the wind. Just hadn't gotten it moved yet.

I checked my weather station when I got back on the house.



I guess 80+ MPH will put an empty dry van on its side, even with some (short) trees on the upwind side.

We had high wind warnings all day not sure why we got missed so far I am guessing maybe topped out at 15 .....when I worked in Dutch harbor I seen several times when fully overloaded parked trailer hooked to tractors full of frozen fish go over that would take about 125. .... Highest gust I ever seen there was 176 ....I was allways glad that my job was on land instead of those boats.....hopefully you did not have to much crop damage
