    It is so windy here ..the gazebo we had on the deck for our only shade just crashed. We had hoped we would actually get more use out of it. Oh well we live and learn.

    Supposed to go to a Halloween party tonight and it's in a tent. The wind is so bad or heavy patio furniture is all turned over. I doubt that I'm going to be setting in a tent with the wind howling!

    Nope..it twisted all the metal and ripped up the screen to bad. It makes me so mad...we can't use the deck without it, it's just way to hot. We planted trees but have awhile to go before they help much. We have all winter to figure out the next plan of action.

    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.

    Sorry your gazebo crashed.

    Windy here in NW Ohio. Live in the country & surounded by flat farm land. Everything ends up in
    my front yard.

    Gusty gales here in WV too. Daughter took me with her and the children yesterday up to Clarksburg in a 12 passenger van they just got and the wind just about blew us off the highway about three times on the way up there. She was having a heck of a time controlling that big beast. When we got back last evening, I found all of my plants on the deck were scattered all over the floor and mostly broken up. The big begonia is gonia now.

    You just might be able to find a replacement over the next few months as they would be out of season. (Cup half full)!

    SO windy all over the Great Lakes area. A dear friend is a captain of a 1,000 footer out on the lakes, and he has been laid up since Friday night because of 20+ foot waves on Lake Superior. His ship is empty and he needs to get across Superior to load it in Deluth. I feel for him, but I LOVE the wind. It is my first fall in MI in 28 years, and I am loving every single second of it.

    I was planning a day to stay home and quilt. On the 7am local news they said. "Waves expected to be 10-15 feet at Lake Mich. I woke up my DH and said, "get up! We are going to the lake!" It was awesome. The lake is always good medicine for me and yesterday it was mega awesome!
