A strong cold front moved through Utica yesterday giving us wind speeds of 20 to 60 mph. We experienced frequent gusts of 50 to 60 mph which did damage to trees, power lines and property. Would you like to see what the winds of this magnitude did to my yard?

It's estimated that the tree removal will set me back a couple hundred bucks. Above you see my hot tub cover is completely smashed, add another $450 bucks to my damage total.

I'm guessing these panels are about $100 bucks a piece.

Looks like I'll need two...Uggg! With a thousand dollar deductible on my homeowners insurance, it looks like I'm going to have to dig into my wallet to get my yard back into shape for Spring. Thanks Mother Nature!
