They weren't nearly as strong as what I've seen here in the past. And my roofing all held strong! :)

Is that a G4200 Kubota? I have a 4200 & absolutely love it! Hope to make the Lanesville show this year!

It is a G6200. I can hear Lanesville's tractor pull from home!
No damage here, just a nice steady rain.

Glad everyone's making it thru OK, it's been raining here all day, but now the wind is picking up. We'll see what this evening holds.

It was a rough one. We hung thru just fine... except our glider-swing that got thrown acrossed the yard. Nothing damaged except some small branches. Our neighbor lost a 12+ inch flowering pear tree, and there is heavy tree damage around the area. Overall we were lucky. No confirmed tornado around here, but it did get pretty bad at work around 1:15PM. Wind and rain was just roaring, then my ears popped with a big change in pressure... I though for sure we were going to get some new sky-lights
Glad to hear everyone else is in good shape

Glad to hear you weathered the storm, Dan. That went through our area (NW Arkansas) early Monday morning. Lots of rain and more heavy winds. It had been blowing 40-45mph all day Sunday, and has continued until just this evening. Glad it's past. I hope everyone else in the path of this storm is OK.

My parents are still without power... looks like Friday AM at the earliest. Hopefully they over-estimated the timeframe... Dad's running the generator to keep the fridge and freezer cool. And keeping mom's coffee pot going of course :beer:
