Default Storm in Ohio

WOW!!! It all started yesterday. My son lost pieces of his roof and rain was leaking in the house. his sump pump wasn't working right. his dad and him fixed it with a backup pump. Adam got on the roof with a rope around his waist and his dad on the other he fixed ,well tempry fixed the roof. sharing a picture of that. Adam said if the 40 MPH winds sent him flying his dad would fly over the roof and probably land on him.

This morning after 70 mph winds and no electric for a few hours we have a huge tree between our house and neighbor down. scare us to death. How it didn't hit either house is a miracle.

My GS school lost part of its roof. even the Rock and Roll hall of fame is damaged. couldn't get a good picture of the tree. between rain ,wind and too dark best i could get.

Glad everyone is safe! We lost power last night, estimate is that we won't get it back until midnight thurs! We are in Michigan. minor inconvenience compared with what's going on on the east coast.

Happy to hear everyone is safe -- property can be fixed or replaced, life can't. Stay safe and know all your friends are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

I am glad the damage wasn't worse. We are to get some wind from the storm today. It is sunny and mid 50s.

thought I'd share a picture of me and our down tree. took us 6 hours to clean up the damage . we know have a pile of tree about 6 ft x8ft. Tomorrow or Thursday weather permit will be moving the cut up tree to front tree lawn. not looking forward to that at all. this old 62 yr old body sure feels it tonight lol!!
