Well dear readers, there just weren't enough of you to reign in the wind (see a previous post to get the reference). I started out optimistic, loading the entire greenhouse structure onto the trailer. That took about 2 hours. Then I headed north and watched the west wind bow in the side of the structure. After about 20 miles of this, I headed west and the wind shoved the entire greenhouse about 2 feet off the back of the trailer. I drove about 20 miles at 35 miles per hour watching the greenhouse shimmy and shake in my rear view mirror and realized that at this rate, it would take me over 8 hours to get home. Plus, my stress levels were off the charts and after 8 hours I would no doubt melt into a nervous breakdown.
Loaded and battered.
So, I pulled over next to a storage facility and began to dismantle the whole thing, something I should have done at the very beginning. This took about 3 1/2 hours. I then hit the road and got home after dark without incident. Never, never, never underestimate the wind.
