Default Putting the Yurt to the Test

Well, it looks like we have some pretty windy and wet weather coming in today.. My local forecast is as follows:

Quote:
A very strong low pressure area will impact the region today. Accompanying the low is a strong cold front that will move through during the afternoon. This front will produce widespread showers and thunderstorms as it moves through the region. There is a high likelihood for severe storms developing through the afternoon. It appears the highest threat for severe weather will arrive between 2pm-8pm. A squall line associated with front will race through CNY impacting the immediate CNY area between 3pm-6pm. The main mode of severe weather during the afternoon looks like damaging straight line wind with wind speeds in excess of 70mph embedded in stronger thunderstorms. There is a lot of wind energy in the atmosphere, so there is a chance that a brief, isolated tornado could form. Expect torrential downpours as this line moves through during the mid-to-late afternoon.
So I guess I will be putting

Pacific Yurts

engineering to the test today lol.. I am getting all my outdoor stuff done now and hopefully all will be good. At least the sun is out and charging the panels for now! The yurt camp is in a little hollow, so is pretty protected against wind, but 70MPH is 70MPH after all..

Will hopefully check in with you all later!

Good luck, we had a similar event right after we got ours up and it worked out fine. The wind can't get a grip on the round structure.

Awesome! We got the same storm later and everything stayed in place just fine. I was worried because this was the first real test of the stove support. Today I climbed it (stove support) and it didn't move, I was seeing how hot the chimney was getting, with the stove test. The chimney was warm, but touchable with stove running at 450. The stove pipe outlet metal was barely warm.
