We just had our first major spring storm last night.I just completed my 10X12 HFGH It came through in great shape after our storm ended here in central IL.Thanks to the expert help from the many postings on this fine site. My name is Dale I am a College student ,I am majoring in horticulture and landscape design, I'm due to graduate this December. I am also a 57 year old stroke survivor. I have no use of my left hand or arm. I walk with a cane I wear a brace on my left leg also.Part of my sight is gone in both of my eyes. But life is good , I love my new greenhouse.and my great neighbor who helped me build my greenhouse. If any one wold care to see any photos of this project, I would be glad to post some pictures.

Hello Dale, I'd also enjoy seeing photos of your greenhouse! Good heavens, 80mph gusts is a very impressive wind speed to survive. We have bad winds here, but I am a bit relieved that my 10x12 has not been tested to that degree yet!

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation, as well as your wonderful attitude about the undeniably precious value of our daily lives. I agree entirely. :-)
