A storm blew through northern Michigan this week, including on the Old Mission Peninsula. While we didn’t get hit quite as hard as the Megastorm of 2015 (thank goodness), there was still some major damage around the neighborhood.

And, of course, it knocked out the power for quite a few of us (get ready for winter!). The USDA was on the job and sent me a press release about food safety during a power outage the next day.

Here are a few storm photos from around the OMP. Along with these, there were also trees down on Smokey Hollow, Wilson Road and other areas around the neighborhood.

A large tree fell on Dave and Deb Allen’s house over on Kroupa Road. I asked Deb if there was a giant hole in the house, and she said there’s definitely a large dent inside the house. Fortunately, they weren’t in the house at the time it happened.

This late 1930s Dodge, previously owned by Dave Kroupa, had a tree fall on it at its new owner’s place on Dunn Drive. That’s a heartbreak!

Sean and Meg (Griffin) Havenga lost two old-growth Maple trees in their yard. This is the second tree tragedy for them, having lost two other trees earlier this year.

A section of Neahtawanta Road was roped off with a yellow ribbon, as crews worked on a downed power line. Nearby resident Teri Wischer kept us posted on the progress on Facebook.

Shipman Road got its share of damage, too. Here’s a photo from Nancy Davy.
