The big wind that did this to a wedding photo shoot ---
--also snapped several fence posts and took out a section of our fence.
After removing the slats, DH discovered there was damage to most of the posts on that side caused by years of blustery weather.
The posts were 4x4 cedar sunk in concrete.
The guys used their mechanical engineering to lever and fulcrum the weights out of the ground--
--and the hand cart to haul them off.
After removing the posts there was a trip to the local building supply store.
New posts were set --
--and new concrete bases poured.
The guys took a break over the weekend to give the cement time to cure.
On Monday DH put the slats back up. Later Beavis came to help with the gate.
In spite of all that damage, only one slat was broken.
The guys will replace it with a new one after they get back from their fishing trip.
Priorities, you know.
