We enjoyed a beautiful sunny day today, but it was very windy all day. This is what our less than 2 year old gazebo looked like before, solid top and screened side drapes:
We stored it indoors over the winter and our oldest son and my niece just put it up two weeks ago. Today the whole canopy ripped right off the supports and the peaked bars came down. It is ripped right down the middle of the top canopy and many bars are bent.
Happy June, everyone! We have one month left of school here, and therefor one month left until I'm off for the summer. You can believe that I am counting the days!
Edited to add: My coworkers (and neighbour's) patio table flipped over, the top smashed and the umbrella snapped in half. My sister (also a neighbour) had her umbrella break too (and they were both closed.) I saw two gazebo's similar to ours torn to pieces too. Must have been quite the wind!
