XR6Hurricane Posted June 23, 2014 Share Posted June 23, 2014 Western Lake County, IL got hit with some nasty straight line winds (probably 75-80 mph) plus a twister yesterday about 4:30 PM. Big maples looked like a giant hand was shaking them and it rained about 3-4 inches in a half hour - sideways at times. Pictures show what's left of the storage shed that my grandfather built in 1955. The fact that it was still standing at all is a tribute to true 2 x 4s made of Douglas fir. The picture taken through the window is the definition of what it means to "get lucky". The motor on the far left is a 1928 Evinrude, next to it a 1940 Elto, and the one closest to the camera is a 1936 Johnson. We cut a hole in the wall with my chain saw and got all of the motors out this morning with no damage. Could have been a helluva lot worse.
