Unfortunately, the beautiful Miranda Gardens Motel had a Redwood tree fall on it crushing the awning and the office. I hope that their insurance covers the damage. Although I don’t know the owners, friends have spoken highly of them.
I hear rains and high winds are going to continue through the weekend. On their blog, Carol and Greg are reminding everyone to move animals out of low lying areas. And, Richard at Samoa Softball is urging everyone to avoid driving over the mountains if they can. He says that the truck drivers are complaining that the trailers are blowing like kites behind the big rigs and are hard to control. Eric at SoHum Parlance says the electricity is back on and there was some minor storm damage in town. Ernie tells about a tree through a house in Redway in the comments section of his post. Some poor woman was in it but not hurt. If your power is out, Heraldo and his readers have an amusing time talking about what you might be doing but, if your power is out you won’t be able to appreciate it until later.
Check out the photo credits for a nice review of the Miranda Gardens Motel and the people who run it.
