Big Windstorm Right Now In 29 Palms

Post by Goldseeker » Fri Apr 03, 2009 2:47 pm

Its seriously windy here in 29 Palms right now. A neighbor has lost many shingles off the garage, I lost about 11 of them, it feels like gusts of 80 or 90 to me. The weather channel says 50 mph winds now, but it feels worse to me, esp the gusts, which are almost constant. Things flying everywhere.

Yes, It's been very windy here in Overton Nevada today too. I came home hoping to get some things done around the property but it won't be today.

That lasted until after midnight, blowing continuosly gusts up to 80 or 90 I bet. No damage, (Block and brick house) but leaves everywhere. Neighbor lost a good portion of their garage roof shingles. My neighbor who has been here since the 40's said that was as bad as he has ever seen it. Guaranteed damage in town at some places. :x :cry:

I hope everyone and their property made it through without too much damage! The remote weather stations showed gusts as high as 60MPH, but we know that the wind can get much higher locally.

Last night would NOT have been a good night to spend in a tent!

We were out and about last friday during the worst of it driving out to Hole in the Wall. The dust in Newberry Springs was pretty darn thick. Once we got out into areas where there was desert pavement, the dust wasn't so bad. Not the best day to go on a trip but as the saying goes......wherever you go, there you are!

Final Tally: 11 shingles blown off the garage roof
$75 for a liscensed roofer to professionally install new ones. I could have done it myself, but for $75......
.....and 1 bundle of 22 new ones for $22, so, now 11 left over, which I hope I never need....
he said they were 60 mph shingles, we had gusts up to 90-100 mph, really.
