I will be offline for a little bit.
We experienced an EF2 tornado here in northwestern Michigan.
My wife and I are fine.
The house not so much.
There is a tree in the roof.
We lost all of our mature trees around our home.
It was divine intervention that the house isn't destroyed.
We lost 95% of the old growth oak, maple and towering white pines.
I don't have insurance.
Bad circumstances, not neglect.
If you know anyone that can help with this storm cleanup in this part of the world, shout out.
I only have a 16 inch saw, most of the trees uprooted are three feet minimum.
Got a sawmill or firewood business..send them by.

Today is my 4th anniversary of our family's Hurricane Irmageddon evacuation out of Ft Myers. (The house eventually was passed over at that Cat 3 / Cat 4 technicality). Good vibes that things come back together and quickly for you and your family.

Thanks for the well wishes.
The cleanup is going better than I expected it to.
A long ways to go and I still have to get the tree out of the roof, but I will manage it.
Here is a video of right around our home.
I plan on uploading a bunch just for future reference.
Our tree loss is about 75% of the mature trees.
I however won't ever buy firewood again.

I'm sorry that happened.
I don't ever want to experience a hurricane!
Those are like an eight hour tornado, as I understand it.

So sorry to hear about the damage to your home! I just returned from being evacuated during IDA. These events are very difficult to bear! Glad you and yours are unharmed which is a blessing. Hope you find help with your home soon :)

Hey Cons.
I hope all is well with you.
I can't imagine being evacuated!

I found out something again about life that I have known for a long time, rely only on yourself!
I'd rather save myself anyways.
My Church Pastor loaned me a ladder as mine is pinned under a large oak tree.
I'm not the type of guy that can handle asking for help.
I resent myself when I have to.
Pride I guess.
Its been slow hard work, but that's good for body and soul.

Here are some more videos of damage around our property.
I made them for my Mother as this used to be mom and Dad's cottage.
Dad passed in 2008.
Also uploaded them as a personal reminder, ALWAYS expect the unexpected!

Oh wow EE looks like your house is in a bed of tree branches! But it withstood the storm. The good news:) Please be careful removing the big logs, stay safe.
