It has now become a matter of principle. I WILL NOT allow nature to beat me.

Ahem.

We had 70 MPH gusts and 60 MPH sustained winds last night. The updraft is what's killing me.

Suggestion-
   Keep your canopy safely stowed in a garage or shed until you intend to use it?
Sounds like a pain in the ass but I would think it beats having to re-build the thing after every storm.

Maybe I won't bitch about the pergola right now. Neighbors are out looking for their stuff that blew away. A trash can hit a car and damaged the rear bumper.
