First of all, Bonnie and I are OK!
Had a Tornado, straighline wind or micro burst, or something on Jun 8th, 2014 at 5:30PM CDST
This is the remains of the barn. The car substained a bunch of damage as well
Grain bin used for junk storage substained pretty good damage. The one on the right use to set one foot away from the small tower to its right.
Debris was spread over a 1/4 mile to the South. Took me two hard days to pickup the metal and lumber off of other folks property. Still working on getting the debris cleaned up on my place.
Surprisingly enough, no damage to the towers. The antennas took a beaten, the 40m2L is not working properly. The 80m and 160m inverted vee wires are broken. Otherwise the remaining beams all came through ok, but they are turned in all sort of directions--strange!.
The house roof is a total lost.
Not really looking forward to dealing with the insurance company...
