131 mph Winds with 97 mph in Southwest Reno!

Indeed, on Tuesday 131 mph winds came across the mountaintops of the Sierra Nevada causing havoc in Reno below. Winds of 97 mph were registered in southwest Reno. Our weather station registered 89 mph before we were hit by a power outage! Rats! I really wanted to know what we had! We lost 4 flat tiles and one capstone from our tile roof as far as we can tell. One pole holding up one of the weeping cherry branches was toppled. Everything else looks fine. Thank goodness!! Here’s the Reno Gazette-Journal story. Calvin Palmer blogged about it, too!
