Gazebo Crash October 23, 2006

Such a windstorm we had on Friday night.  I think we must have been out having dinner when the gazebo jumped over the railing on our back deck and launched itself into our back yard.

It grazed the house a little bit, which is a bit of an issue because there is some vinyl siding that I’ll have to replace, probably.  It also took a chunk out of the playset.  It is a lot heavier than I thought (plus it was actually screwed into the deck in a couple of places.)  There was one tear in the fake canvas roof of the thing, but I think that structurally I should be able to repair it.  The cover needed to be replaced anyway.

As you can see, it vaulted not only the railing, but all of the patio furniture that was inside of it, which was untouched.
