We were very thankful for the rain last night. We were happy that we did not receive any hail. The lightning show was fantastic. We did, however, have one casualty:
Just as the storm was approaching the Dunk Ranch, there was a pretty violent gust of wind. I didn't realize that the windmill had fallen over until I walked around the house a little while later. The wooden derrick part of the windmill weighs a lot, so I was surprised that it blew over. A few of the blades are bent, but I think I can straighten them out fairly well.
I guess now I know why the windmill came with pre-drilled holes and sections of rebar to anchor it to the ground . . .
