During the rain and wind storm last night the two of the tie-down stakes holding the storage shed I assembled yesterday pulled out of the ground. According to my weather station, the wind gusted to nearly 30 mph during the night. I should have tied the shed to the pallet with a ton of steel pipes for the deer fence.

In addition to resetting the Storage Shed, projects for the day included assembling two workbenches and moving/inventorying the steel pipe for the deer fence.
