It was a bit breezy last night, in case you didn't notice. A storm seems to have skipped through down. Anyone know of any damage? Any trees down in town? I know some cars were supposed to have been hit by flying plywood from a construction site. Was this on Haynes? Does anyone know?

I know 12 Mile had some buildings damaged and winds estimated at 90 mph. Hail south of Harlow and in Glendive was, I gather, a bit unpleasant. I devote the weekend to watering the yard and as soon as it is all nice and wet, it rains.

Amorette did her rain dance which looks a lot like someone moving a hose and sprinkler around their yard.

Anyone hear anything about the fire department responding to an emergency at the airport?

Heard about a plane crash but not sure if it was before or during the storm

I saw a bunch of Styrofoam on Haynes last night, in front of the Cenex gas station. No plywood though.
My jobsite was secured.

Plane had to make an emergency landing due to weather, I believe. Not a real crash but scary as all get out.

My in-laws in Glendive had some northside windows broken from hail and they think their roof will need replacing.

Nice photo Richard. Thanks for posting. It was interesting watching the storm front proceed south of the interstate. I was not hardcore enough to go out and take photos once the rain started, and I finished feeding just as the first rain drops fell in the Valley. I drove through the 12-mile area yesterday when we were returning from Moon Creek. I was shocked by the devastation.

Looks like a nasty bit of microburst. I know Steve went out to take some photos at 12 Mile yesterday. Miles City really missed the worst of it.

Out here at Moon Creek the old Moon Creek school lost a bit of its roof, trees were uprooted and broken off. Several ended up across the roads.

The thing that *blew* (ha ha) me away was seeing those giant, round hay bales blown through/over barbed wire fences and into the road. There were close to a dozen of them scattered around. Wow.
