Boys not happy here: horizontal rain, Windy and First day of bow season!! But still went out this morning--no luck-- Have you checked into those roll out canopys and then roll back up or now have those heavy duty sail shades/tarps. Those look pretty interesting.

Temps in the high 40s and 30 mph winds here. Made for an interesting walk with the dogs. My furniture is rearranged, but it's still here. That's a plus.

I'm sorry your gazebo crashed. We've had a lot of wind here, too.

I work from home on Saturdays and all the wind we had here in Michigan kept making my internet go in and out. what did I accomplish, ummm, not too much! It has slowed down now though.

Very blustery in SW Michigan also! Too bad about your gazebo. At least no one was in it when it wrecked.

Very few in my area even have gazebos due to wind.
