Recently remodeled Burger Box was hammered, some nearby apartment complexes lost their roofs. A couple customers were in the drive-thru of the Burger Box but escaped serious injury. We were about 2.5 miles north, really strong winds, heavy rains. Couple trees down near us but otherwise no damage.

We had our windows open when it came across the lake. Crazy how it seemingly hit us out of nowhere. An outdoor sofa cushion blew into our grass from the patio, but nothing major, thankfully. We just had our roof replaced from the hail/straight line winds from last June. :noes:

Let me get this straight, an outdoor sofa cushion blew away? GoFundMe link?

If it's any consolation, I had to bring mine inside to keep them from blowing away. Then had to put them back outside when it passed. It was awful.

I know, right? I left one sitting up and not covered by our furniture protectors. Lake effect when the storms come from our west. :o The straight line winds of similar force hit our house last year and blew our 6 year old fence completely over.
