Windy Wordless Wednesday


We had a wind storm whip through here this week (see the trees physically toppling over?).

It knocked one tree over onto the corner of our big barn, and whipped open the little door up high.

This was the loudest/biggest break. The top went directly between two out buildings.
Our yard is now a big mess with downed trees and branches everywhere.
We have some pretty huge trees directly over our house,
and they didn't fall, so despite the mess, we're still feeling pretty lucky!

Hi Rosey .. well I think you escaped some potential danger .. just glad it's a mess and nothing worse ... I hope you've got an open fire for the lovely fire-wood once chopped up ... looks like Thanksgiving might be some rallying around to clear up and then enjoy that Turkey - cheers and good luck - Hilary

Janine Huldie said...

So glad you are all ok though, but wind storms can be messy and scary, too.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Glad no one was hurt! Hope it doesn't take long to clean up.
And you have one of the nicest looking barns I've ever seen.
Have a great Thanksgiving!

Pat Hatt said...

Good there was no super damage, but yeah still a pain in the arse to clean up

Veronica Lee said...

So glad to know that everything is okay, Storms are scary!

Manzanita said...

That was a terrific windstorm. I am not a fan of wind. I just realized what I wrote..... haha I am a fan of "no wind."
We've had some pretty terrific windy days here too. I had the plastic summer yard furniture against the back of the garage and it was scattered all over the yard.
I hope you can get the damaged trees down without further damage to the buildings.

Some of those big storms can be a mess for sure. We live in a wooded area, so when big storms whip up, we have had downed trees, too. Glad you guys are all ok.

Beware of dangerous trees, beautiful pictures !!

Sandee said...

Yikes. Not good. Got to get that off the barn before it does more damage. The wind can be very unkind at times.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Kristi Maloney said...

Julie Corbisiero said...

Wow Rosey, I'm so sorry to hear about the wind storm knocking down the tree and hitting the barn. You are lucky nothing happened to your house. Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.
Julie

Poor trees! I'm glad none of them fell on your house.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I don't like wind storms, because they can really wipe out the power for days.

Secondary Roads said...

One of our birch trees no graces our lawn--horizontally. As we went out yesterday, there was a tree across our road. We were able to slip by with two tires off-road.

Anonymous said...

That looks like a strong wind storm! So glad you are safe.

stevebethere said...

Crikey that's quite frightening Rosey glad your all OK :-)

Christy Maurer said...

That wind was so crazy here too! I was surprised out power didn't get knocked out. Glad the trees didn't fall on your house!

Cathy said...

The power of wind is so incredible. We had a pretty bad storm here a couple weeks ago and the damage the was scary! Some people are still repairing the damage it caused.

We lost our Electric a couple of days ago. It was so windy out that I just figured that was the reason.

Joanne said...

Wow - good thing nobody got hurt. Gotta love Mother nature!

Lois Alter Mark said...

That looks like some wind storm. Glad no one was hurt!

Ben Butler said...

I'm glad no one was hurt. At least you got some great pictures out of it.

Jeanine said...

Yikes! That can be so scary, wind storms freak me out! Glad no one was hurt!

Aimee Fauci said...

I'm always nervous with heavy wind storms since we live in an area with a lot of explainable power lines.

Lesley said...

I hate the wind. Scary stuff. Wind here is vicious, I'm always happy when it dies down.

Marie Moody said...

Thanks for stopping by.. sorry about no linky I had no clue it wasn't showing. It's fixed now if you'd like to stop by & sign up... but I surely know about these wind storms being right outside of Chicago. I remember one time I still had up our Patio umbrella and it was gone when I went outside and then I found it in the backyard... it was on our frontporch, and one time I found it in the neighbor's yard... I finally put it in the garage. lol HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM OUR HOME TO YOURS MY FRIEND!

Marie Moody said...

OH sorry I had to run... I have to enter all these give-aways of yours these are awesome... I hope I'm done on time to cook! bwahahahaha

Erica Brooks said...

Wow, that can be scary. Thank goodness no one got hurt.

jaime said...

Wind can be so scary. We had some rough wind a few weeks ago that dropped some limbs on the roof of our house. Ugh.

Binky said...

There was a wind storm here too, with winds up to 60 MPH. hey can be dangerous.

Mary said...

Wow. Glad you didn't have any major damage!

Theresa Mahoney said...

Those winds were crazy! Jason came home and was wondering why our very heavy fence gate was open. Those darn winds knocked it clear open, when even he has trouble getting it open sometimes.

Amber Nelson said...

It is so amazing to me that wind can do that powerful damage. So crazy.

Paula Schuck said...

We had the same weather here too!! I was worried my fence was going to collapse. My basketball net was knocked over into my driveway. It was brutal.

Kristen Campbell said...

Oh my! I'm so glad you're all okay!

Coolmoms Cooltips said...

We know all about crazy winds here in South Florida
Glad you guys are safe and only have the mess to deal with

Aisha Kristine Chong said...

Everything has an double edge sword to it. I am glad you and your family were safe.

Rena McDaniel said...

I hate storms like this! I am lucky in this house most of our storms come from the back of the property and the trees back there are far enough away that they won't hurt anything. We did cut some trees down last Spring next to our bedroom that looked pretty scary.

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

Lovely pictures, I am not liking the damage though, I think I would find that really scary! x

Joyce Lansky said...

Great capture.

indah nuria Savitri said...

I hope ypu all are okay..I never like storm and look what it has done...stay safe..

Amanda said...

Oh geesh. I'm glad everyone is safe! Hopefully that was the only one of the year you will have to encounter!

Annemarie Leblanc said...

Wind storms can be super dangerous, glad all is okay!

Ourfamilyworld said...

I am so sorry you have to go through this wind storm. I am glad no one was hurt

Brian Miller said...

ANNIE M said...

I love that first photo! Glad everyone is safe from the storm though!

Ann B said...

It has been very windy here as well. Many trees were broken. I hate stormy weather.

Janet W. said...

Looks like you have quite a mess to get cleaned up! I'm glad to hear you're all safe. It's been very windy in GA these past few days, too.

Onica MommyFactor said...

My goodness its been very windy in your area. Thank goodness no one was close to that tree. Stay safe during this crazy weather season.

RICHARD HICKS said...

Nothing frightens me more than strong wind.

Heather Lawrence said...

Love the beautiful pictures!
I'm terrified of strong wind too... last winter the wind pushed our BBQ off the side of our deck and onto a huge pile of hard snow.
What a mess!

Melissa said...

We had high winds come through our area too! I was just waiting to open up my front door & see Oz. Glad you came out of it safe!

Ann Jones said...

We had a big storm a couple of weeks back too. I'm glad that none of the trees right around your house fell!

Fariha M. said...

Whoa! Good thing you're alright. Reminds me of the ice storm of 1999 we had in Montreal.

alissa apel said...

That sucks! :( I'm glad you are safe. It's still not fun to clean up.

Kristie said...

That was some strong wind wasn't it?! I think it may have even been a bit calmer here than by you, but our area still have several trees come down and power outages. I'm glad you made it through it safely and hopefully didn't have to go without power at all. :-)

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

How did I not know after a couple of years that you have a barn?? I am jealous!! I'm so glad the trees didn't do too much damage, you know our family history with falling trees, I don't like wind or branches cracking at all!!
