Solar Tracker blown over

Well, it seems the 500lb concrete bases I made for the Solar Trackers were not sufficient for Saturday September 29th, 2007’s high winds.  We had gusts around 40-50mph and they tipped tracker #2 over.  The west most Kyocera KC120 was drove about 12″ into the ground but the whole array survived. I immediatly set out to extend the legs with 75lbs more concrete per leg.
