Tornado Part Deux
Here is the before shot of the garage and the installation of our (Fema F-5) Texas Tech tested 5 person Iron Eagle-II from Storm Safe Rooms. Brad came up from Tulsa, Ok area to install it. It was amazing to watch him install it. Once it was in the garage he used the Egyptian way he claims. He rolled it into place using metal pipes under it. Hubby, in red shirt, had to get involved & did a bit of pushing too. Once in place Brad drilled holes into the concrete 3 inches deep & epoxied & screwed that bad boy down.
You should go watch the videos on their website. Pretty amazing!
Once Brad left we ran an extension cord through one of the vent holes & installed a clamp light inside. I’ve put 3 one gallon jugs of water inside so far. I’ll be adding some of our important papers and photos. Besides the dog leashes hubby wants to add muzzles. Nothing like a pissy Great Dane in a storm. She just can't keep her mouth to herself.
We’ve named the shelter the USS Missouri because of the battleship gray paint
