High winds capsize construction truck on the mountain.
This is the longest period of time with high winds that I can remember in the past nine years. We have had winds for over 24 hours. The storms hit us hard last night. We had over 4.5 inches of rain. I am surprised the cabins did not end up in the rivers below. The winds are still howling, but the sun is trying to peek through. Hopefully we will have a nice day on the mountain.
