High Winds in the forecast

Recommended Posts

Great just finished setting up my mega tree (18 foot) and now we have a high wing advisory for our area for the next 2 day (sustained winds of 35 gusts to 80 mph) I guess I will have to lay the tree down for a few days and hope for the best. I have it guy wired at top and mid point but don't think it will take 80 mph esp the star--any thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions? Whiskey to drowned my sorrows?

Every year that I have done this there has been a big wind storm within one week of my setting up my mega tree. Never fails... and neither has my tree. Step back, watch the storm, have a couple of shots, and rest assured that you put it up well and it will stay standing!

When designing any elements for my display, I always keep the potential for nasty weather in mind.

But I know it's hard to plan for everything.

Luckily for you, you can take down your tree and put it back up.

With mine being 33' and 192 strands, I don't really have that option. It will have to ride out what ever mother nature throws my way.

I wish you best of luck though.
