Idaho wind storm a few weeks ago

Some huge storms came trough a few weeks ago and dropped a LOT of trees!

Our house was OK, but a few trees dropped on our lot into the next one.

My aunts, uncles, relatives next door were not so lucky. Power was out for several days and in the mid 20's, which doesn't help the situation. Luckily my brother was out there running around taking care of all the homes.

It's Hayden Lake, about 40 miles south of Sandpoint.

Good reason not to have large pine trees close to the house, the root ball for a tree that size in incredibly small. I have seen that around Houston for years, didn't think y'all had storms like that there.

Cool Pics, glad your place was spared.

Wind speeds around 75mph were the highest on record. We've had some pretty nasty wind storms come through over the past few years. There was a thread here from a forum member about his Mastercraft that sunk on last summer during one of these. Pretty scary seeing what happens on some of the bigger lakes when one of these hit and there's no where to go.
