Now that is an excellent idea! I will have to look around the barn, I think I have some all thread around somewhere that might work.
I am still looking at this thing with amazement....
On the right side of the barn is about a 14x20 piece folded over to the left side where about a 14x16 piece flew up. They are all mashed together in a stack and all it hit was the gutter on the TT - which is like 1/2" wide. If it had moved even 1/4" more toward the camper it probably would have taken a chunk out of it.
I think what saved me was my jack leg electrical wiring in the barn...It stopped pulling out rafters where I ran my romex....ripped about 3 staples out and part of the rafter, but it held....if it had not, most of the debris would have landed on the TT....
That was some wicked storm..... Right after the storm we made a pretty good house fire, two houses with trees through them, and a bunch of injuries. Our county had over 50,000 homes without power....so all in all....I am still feeling lucky......
