The storm hit us around 1 p.m. yesterday afternoon. The high winds recorded were 38 miles an hour. We received 1.75" of rain and the high was 54 with a low of 43. The forecast is calling for high winds today as well. I will keep you posted. I took some pictures from the flat area along Alum Cave trail, leading into camp. I was interested to see the downed trees from this winter and how much it is going to effect the forest floor. I also was wondering how much more damage high winds could bring to this section. I will keep you posted.
