Storms in your life

A couple of weeks ago, a storm blew through the area with winds they tell me were in excess of 75 miles per hour. The next morning, I received a call from my next door neighbor informing me that my sailboat, a 16 foot catamaran, and its trailer had been blown around and flipped over
