It has been windy every day for approximately two weeks straight, and when we say windy, we don’t mean breezy, we mean windy. With some gusts from 25 to even 50-plus miles per hour for several days in the past 10 days, some parts of Sanborn County just couldn’t hold on any longer, and damage was done.

The nice wooden fence that Anthony and Ericka Filter had built all around their yard did not weather well, as a large section of the fence on the west side of their back yard blew completely down flat to the ground. Many lawn ornaments and outdoor equipment from people’s yards all over the county were destroyed or blown into other areas.
