Lake Tyee Community,
I would like to say that I am very pleased and proud, to be a part of this community. When the need arises, this community is there in support and help of one another. We are so very lucky to have such an amazing group of people for our neighbors and staff.
Tuesday night (1/12/2021) we experienced a significant wind event. The wind was merciless, toppling large and small trees, breaking branches, blowing debris everywhere and generally wreaking havoc. To keep things interesting, the falling trees caused a widespread power outage.
Most importantly, we made it through the storm without anyone being injured. Property is replaceable, people are not.
Security has assessed the damage throughout the park. We have identified all the significant damage and what was found has been reported to the lot owners. As the cleanup progresses, we will continue to be on the lookout for any damage we may not have identified previously. We will continue to notify owners if we find an issue at their lot.
Crews made significant progress yesterday with the cleanup efforts. All the trees blocking roads have been dealt with and all roads are again passable. Truckloads of debris have been removed and the cleanup continues.
I would like to thank the staff and volunteers that went to work on clearing the roads, dealing with trees that still presented a hazard and the cleanup effort. Yesterday was a day of hard, difficult work and the teams that took on those jobs did so without complaint.
I would like to thank all the volunteers that have helped so much. People were gathering debris, cutting trees, and helping to clear lots. Others helped by checking on lots for owners and reporting back to them. Everyone was doing all they could to help their neighbors.
I would also like to especially thank Dan Pfluger and his team, not only for volunteering to help in this event, but for the many years of heading up the danger tree evaluation and removal. Their efforts over many years, has helped to keep damage to a minimum, when an event such as what we just had occurs. It was amazing to see the number of trees that fell without harming anything. Dan and his team have done an excellent job identifying and eliminating the trees that would truly cause harm.
With over 800 lots in a forest, the number of damage reports were relatively few. For those that did suffer damage our hearts go out to you.
Power is still out and may be for a while, but security is keeping a good eye on the park, as are those currently staying here. Cleanup will continue for several days until we get back to normal.
Once again Mother Nature has shown us, she is in charge and has given us a reminder to be prepared and carry good insurance.
I’m glad the storm has ended, I’m grateful for the people we have in this community and I’m so very thankful no one was hurt.
