Sorry to hear this, Gary. Hope it isn't too bad. But water in the ceiling is bad enough. Good luck, maybe the repairs will be an easy fix. Take lots of pics for the insurance people.

Same storm went through here around 11:30 last night! 1" of rain, 70-80 mph winds, plenty of limbs down, but no building damage! HPIM2130.JPG
Some limbs broken out & hung in the top of the big Ash, nothing I can do about them until they fall out on their own (last pic.). I've got the top broken out of one Ash tree about 6" at the break: HPIM2132.JPG
I'll have to drag the top out with the tractor, then cut the branch off at the fork. Hope to get it mostly cleaned up today, going to be a long day for an old coot! :D But, at least we don't have any serious damage! ~~ grnspot

We got hit by the same storm last night. I would have sworn the house was jumping up and down. Got just over 4 1/2" of rain that we really needed, but could have done without all the tree limbs all over the yard.
Glad to here the two of you fellow Missourians survived another bout of good ole Missouri weather.

Finished the cleanup about 4 o'clock this evening! Used the 790 to pull the broken top out of the smaller Ash, chipped up anything less than 2-1/2" with the Troybilt 10HP chipper/shredder. Wife picked up the smaller sticks & brought them to me with the 74-112 10P cart.

I'm one tired puppy!!!!! :sleep: ~~ grnspot

That wind was awesome! I left my Goldwing out so it could get "rinsed off" as yesterday was the first time in '11 it has been out of the shed and it had lots of dust on it. I just knew it was going to get blown over but I had it headed nearly straight into the direction the wind came from [luckily] and it was on the big double stand. Had to de-limb my pickup to get the door open so as to go to work this morning but no damage. Well, one more dent wouldn't be noticed anyhow!
