Here in central Ohia, that was some wind coming through on Sunday from the remnants of Ike! They had warnings out, and they said the winds (gale warnings) would top out at around 60 mph.
If those were 60 mph winds that came through here (and I doubt it), then I'd hate to see what hurricane force winds of 100+ mph were.
We lost power in this region around 2 PM Sunday - knocked the Bengal game on Dayton 7 right off the map (no great loss there). Thank God I have a whole house generator, because we were on it, while everyone else had zip, for about 6 hours.
Lost some sections of my vinyl siding, as well as some spouting, and numerous tree branches down. After walking around the neighborhood looking for the remnants, I have spent yesterday and today repairing it. Made a few trips to Lowes. One of the bigger branches came down over my shed and was draped over a power line, so I played it safe and called the utility company to come clear that one out.
My neighbors had sections of their roof (shingles) come off. And power has been on and off for the last day or so. Kids didn't have school till today. And at all the Honda plants only various shifts were working due to power.
Other then that - we're doing OK.
But it kinda puts things in a better perspective for me, because what we got was mild compared to what those folks down along the coast in Texas, Louisiana, and Florida got.
But standing out on my front porch watching it was something else.
