    Tree Damage Pics

    Here are the pics I said I'd post with my tent trailer under a tree up camping:






    This happened this july 13th (on a friday at that) at Lake Kachess in washington
    Luckily no one was inside, in fact my wife and her friend got out of it about 10-15 mins before it happened

    This guy got it too

      it was a freak wind storm that only lasted for about 30mins. the storm stretched from almost the ocean to the middle of washington and went north, again, the storm only lasted about 30 mins. some people were like....what wind storm?

        Man, that`s a shame. still, luckily no one was inside
        What was the start of all this?
        When did the cogs of my Hawk begin to turn?
        Perhaps it is impossible to grasp the answer now,
        from deep within the flow of time...

        But, for a certainty, back then,
        I loved it so much, yet hated so many.
        I hurt others and was hurt myself...

        Yet even then, I rode like the wind,
        whilst my laughter echoed
        under cerulean skies...

            Your wife was lucky! That would have been bad...

            our wind storm only lasted about 3 to 5 minutes. But the damage accross New York, Vermont and New hampshire is in the millions.

            Ours was 90mph.... I can't imagine what the place would look like if a hurricane like dean slid over at 140mph for three hours

                Yeah back in December I think it was we had a major wind storm that knocked out most of western washington, probably the same thing that happened in New York area, except in lasted most of the night here. There was huge damage across the state, I think most of western Washington was without power for a week. My place was only out for 4 days, but my buddy was out for 6 days. Motorpsycho can attest to that too, he lives close by.

                I worked for a large roofing company at the time and I think they are still doing storm damage repairs from that wind storm.

                  It was a bit chilly for a while,

                  My house was not to bad but my neighbor said his house was moving up and down 3-4 feet. Of course he was on post and pier with 100 yr old trees surrounding his house. The wind eventually ripped three of them right out of the ground, roots and all. They where stacked like lincoln logs all around his house. One was like 6" away from his bedroom window. Miraculously none hit. But I work in an office with 100+ people and I think we had 5 people that had a tree come throught their roof that night.

                  Craziness.

                          You know what really blows??? My life and the trees around it! Check this out, I am about to leave for Vegas on Friday after work for my anniversary, I had a shitty day at work, traffic sucked balls, I still had to buy my wife something, and our plane was leaving in a couple hours......I was stressed the F*@K OUT! This is what I pulled up to when I got home from work......






                          I can't believe it, twice in 3 months my stuff got hit by a tree, and it wasn't even windy on Friday, it was beautiful out
                          I must have pissed on some ancient burial ground or something

                            but still, that really sucks! Good thing your hawk wasn't parked there
