Firstly, I hope everyone is doing okay after the storm we had on Saturday. Here in Woodlawn, we lost power for 14 hours and I know some areas were much longer. The storm may have been fast, but it was powerful. Surprisingly no trees fell in my yard, but we have lost 5 trees in 3 years. So I understand how that goes. Due to the fact that Woodlawn had endured extreme wind in the past, I knew that I had to get my gazebo down. I had lost 2 in previous storms. I had just enough time before the storm hit. Past experience told me to do that, but sometimes just being prepared is enough to help a bit. So here is a list of items to help prepare you for the next storm.
This list is by no means complete, but it is definitely a start. If you have any questions on how to secure your home, or what to do if your home was damaged, email us at: [email protected], and we will do our best to help our Clarksville (and beyond) peeps.
