last night was ROUGH ride weather wise. We lost power about 3:00AM and the wind was HOWLING. Local reports show winds gusting 40+ MPH with a steadwind of 30+ for quite a while.
The base frame of the MegaTree has moved about a foot but no visable damage to the tree or the pole.
As you can see in the photo, the MERRY part of our sign is now facing South East instead of due South. Consider the MERRY part of the sign is a tad over 10' long it stretches from the "C" in the Christmas part of the sign to the very EDGE of the roof. Look closely and yuo can see the concrete pads went with it!!!
We got VERY lucky, but we are proud that the sign stood up to the winds that Mother Nature threw at it and stayed on the roof intact... at 6:20am I was on the roof, upper 20 wind chill and repositioned the sign and added some additional weight ...
With any luck, after work, I can check it out and all will be good. The only thing I saw was the two power cables to the controlled came unplugged...
This cold front blast was powerful and FAST moving.. we are watching the forums and hoping that we dont hear from friends with displays destroyed by the frontal passing ...
