After the storm

The trellis fell off the garage.
Shingles fell from the garage roof.

Maple seeds, not mature yet, fell from the big tree.

The silver linings in this series of clouds:
Both rain barrels are full and ready to use.
The garage is still standing.
In our neighborhood of old trees, none came down.
I won't be pulling as many baby maple trees out of the garden this spring!

How high were the wind gusts for that storm? I am glad to see the damage wasn't worse.

I'm not sure; we were in the basement taking shelter, but the tornados (luckily) went around us.
