It knocked down some Japanese cedars in the area...
We brought Momo the Wonder Dog into the main house as Roke approached and closed up all our storm shutters. We faired pretty well, except Momo's dog house was picked up by the wind (Aunty Em, Aunty Em!) and tossed into the yard breaking off half it's roof and some other bits.
The storm also ripped off half of the roofing of our patio. It's just corrugated polycarbonate panels held in an aluminum frame, so not too difficult to replace. Lost some veggies plants and pomegranates, but that's about it as far a damage.
Around dinner time, we had a blackout, but it only lasted for 15 minutes. Later in the evening, one section of the patio roof that was still attached was being curled up by the wind and snapping back onto the frame making a terrible racket. I didn't want to hear that all night so after the wind had abated (to maybe 50 mph) I went out, climbed up and placed two concrete blocks on it to hold it down. With a bit more quiet, we tried to go to sleep, but minutes later at 10:30 PM there was an earthquake - about a 3 on the Japanese scale, and it seemed to last a long time. 5.3 on the Richter scale. After that we slept well!
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Looking forward to sailing on Saturday (about time).
Until next, sweet sailing.
