It's a barn that blew over in a burst of wind near the OR coast, where gusts of 100mph were reported yesterday, reminding us of the fragility of barns. - Fleg

Ouch. A shame to lose a venerable old structure. I hate to see them using a front loader to clean up debris. I would love to get my hands on some that ancient weathered barn wood.

Barn 2.0 is rated for IIRC 110 or 120 mph winds. It is what they call a pole barn where the structure is setting on columns sunk deep in the ground.
