We were hit pretty hard by several small tornados here in Columbus Ohio last week. Power was out for 5 days and I was using my generotor for temporary power for the fridge and a few lights. Could'nt get on line cause the cable was down too... Power is back on for good now they say, but I have alot of damage to my toy room and shop. This sucks big time. One whole wall of shelves were blown down with many of my cars and trucks on them, along with some stored stuff... I am just getting started cleaning up this royal mess up of broken windows, torn up siding, shingles blown off the new roof, and alot of trees and branches down everywhere !!!
Wish me luck guys, I need it !!!

I was in Akron for the last month helping my ailing bro in law and those storms missed us. I am glad your family wasn't hurt. Good Luck getting back to normal very soon.

Good luck bro. We lost power here for a say and my son's basketball goal flipped over and hit BOTH cars. Mine was already going to the body shop from an accident where I was hit at TRU 2 weeks before. Worst part was nothing to show for it

Good luck! We lost power here, and the wind blew one of the big store-front windows out of my buddy's lawn & garden shop. It also blew a lot of branches and leaves all over the road.

Let us know what you need help with.
From the Suburbs of California, we have not been hit with too many storms. Just rain as usual.
Glad everyone is ok.

Glad you are o.k. and sorry to hear about your cars. They can be replaced but you and your family can not.

Hope you have a smooth time now.

Steve, I told you not to build your house out of straw!! :D

All that damage downright sucks! :mad: Good to hear no one was hurt. If you were closer I would come over and lend a hand with the clean up. But like others have offered, I'd be happy to replace whatever I can. :thumbsup:
