    I feel your pain!

    The wind picked up our broody coop and threw it through the greenhouse, completely twisted the frame and smashed the glass pannels [​IMG]

    Called the insurance company that we have been with for 20 years and they turned down our claim because it is not a permenant structure. [​IMG]

    However on the plus side the little cochin who was in the coop when it took flight, is no longer broody! she was called cheryl when we got her and I never thought it suited her, so we renamed her dorothy since she survived the twister [​IMG]

    So sorry to hear that. It's just horrible out, I'm actually afraid to look ourside for fear of what I might see. This just stinks!!

    Hugs to little Dorothy [​IMG]

    Hmm maybe my little silkie Beebers will be scared out of broodydom too...

    I am in a sheltered valley and we are still getting pummeled. I had to fix a broken gate latch already today. The covering on the duck pen looks like it wants to take off [​IMG]

    We've have 3 really old and really big Cottonwood trees in the front yard. I'm just waiting for one to come crashing down in this wind. It's a little unsetteling to watch them sway back and forth.....

    I'm just praying we don't get any wind snow storms, our snow fence blew down about a month ago and broke the posts so no way of fixing it without buying new posts and they were new!!!
    $300 down the drain! [​IMG]

    Q: Why is it always so windy in Colorado Springs?
    A: Because Denver blows and Pueblo sucks
