damage to my greenhouse from wind on Monday morning

greenhouse destroyed from wind storm

My name is Lyndon, I operate a small organic vegetable farm outside of Wyoming called Hartz Produce. I woke up Monday morning to find one of my greenhouses had been destroyed during the strom. It looked like a tornado hit it, there were peices everywhere. The 2x4's that are on the wall of the greenhouse and that hold the plastic down were shattered in spots. The metal channel that anchors the plastic was bent and twisted, it really is amazing to look at.
I have the entire greenhouse filled with crops that I will be selling at farmers markets over the winter and most survived with little damage to them. Now the difficult part will be to replace this plastic before it gets too cold and kills the plants!
Luckily my insurance will cover the cost to repair it, so insurance companies are not all bad guys. Its still tough to see this after working so hard to get it built.
