I'm not sure it was because of the storm but my garage door just broke on my attached garage. I have to get up in 5 hours for work and I just spent the last two fixing that damn door in the freezing sh!tshow outside.

Argggh!

It is really windy and icy here in Wisconsin. There was a terrible 40+ car pile up earlier today with one fatality. The wind, icy and drifting snow is a problem. It was hard to keep the car on the road driving home from wrestling tournament today. Stay safe. Is this the beginning of the next mini ice age?


I believe it was a 131 car pile up. It's a miracle that there was only 1 fatality.

We're just south of A2. Finally, the wind seems to be breaking, or at least lessening...and then the gusts slam our house as I type this. It's been a noisy 24 hours or so. Lucked out power wise, just a quick loss of power at home. Was out to eat yesterday and the restaurant lost power for a bit, good times! Gonna have a ton of sticks from the tree line to clean up when the winds finally gives up. Good luck, everyone.

Still about 7,000 out of power here in Southwest Michigan. We made it through no problem other than the house creeking and groaning.

You are right, I was catching up and reports changed throughout the day.
What a mess. I feel for the people involved.

DTE was down to about 25K.
This morning it's about 50 K.

Still way under the 2017 storm.
Let's hope the next wind storm treats is kindly!

It's a crap-shoot though.
Just because something did or did not happen at the "official" station, doesn't mean much higher gusts didn't happen elsewhere.
Snow, rain, etc. can vary wildly as well.
We ended up buying a rain gauge just for that reason.
Or use the data on Weather Underground....some nearby reporting stations are quite good with data.

Just saying here it seemed like things picked up after sunset for a bit and that data confirms my observation.

Sorry I missed this thread yesterday! Fun times out driving in that wind! Had to take the grandsons home, just north of 57. Wow, driving on the north/south roads? You drive by a small patch of trees, then hit the open field, and you better have both hands on the wheel or your in the other lane. That was crazy. We even stopped on the way home, to move part of a tree off the rd.
I'm grateful we didn't loose power, or end up with one of our pines on our house.
We will have a big ole bonfire with the amount of branches in the yard though.

Hope everyone stayed safe and warm!

Same experience here in the SE.

He's really my go to guy for storm predictions!!!!

Not much in the way of downed anything in my immediate neighborhood beyond future kindling sticks, and hubby said he saw nothing out of the ordinary on the way in to work, so either nothing came down or it was already cleared by then.

But our power did decide to go out for a while anyway, lmao. Right after I warmed the contents of my by then chilled coffee cup in a little sauce pan on the stove, everything kicked back on. I mean, right as I turned the burner off, come on, rotfl.

This was out toward where my brother lives. There are drifts where I work that are 6 to 9 foot tall in some spots.

Thanks for those.
YIKES!

Thanks to your thread I was ready for the storm Sunday morning. My own weather alerts didn't give me as much information.
It was one hell of an ordeal for me. But I was prepared.
