Missed the Storm and Winds

We missed the storm but thought I would post a bit of info on the wind speeds. We seriously lucked out. Had we had 100mph winds, we would have lost A LOT at the Sanctuary (and we still need to repair a few things from last year's near miss of a tornado).

For those not familiar with the area, Garretson is close to an hour away (to the north and east). I drive almost to Garretson to the paying job and the route I took was close to the storm's path. I'll take another way home just to see if the storm was actually north or south of my normal route to the paying job.

PS.. Just the other day, a farmer was out baling hay and they found a stock pot. I'm guessing it's from the neighbors 1/2 mile to the north of us that lost their house. I'm sure through the years, they will find their belongings scattered through the fields.

I'll post more but wanted to show the wind speeds that we missed. Thanking our lucky stars for that!
