Won't be doing any 20/15/10 in the CQWW this weekend, as the tower  
with the A3S was blown over today by the 60+ mph winds with gusts up  
to 80 mph.

The tower is lying on the roof of the house, as it broke off where it  
passed the roof edge, and, thankfully, the A3S was very, very slightly  

TV and FM antennas were destroyed, and the 2m vertical above all that  
is bent severely.

The top of the tower was separated into two pieces by the impact with  
the roof.

NO roof damage, but will have the insurance adjuster here tomorrow or  
Friday to look at it.

Hope to have a replacement tower up before the snow flies.
