Success! This is my sukkah in a stiff wind, as a Pacific storm blows by the California coast. (Please let it rain! Please let it rain!)
There are several delicate balances to be struck with a proper sukkah. The roof must provide more shade than sun, but it must also be open enough for one to see the stars at night. It should be comfortable and pretty enough for celebration, but not permanent. It must be a temporary structure, but it must not blow over in a reasonable amount of wind.
That last – the wind – is a real issue here in the San Leandro Hills. While the roof is not yet quite right (the schach promptly blew off in the wind) the fishnet walls are ideal for this setting.
Moadim l’simcha! – May your days of Sukkot be filled with joy.

My sukkah just blew over! My son went out and put it back up and braced it with some rocks. It is indeed a fragile structure.
Oh no! I think these winds are more than 15 mph. I’m glad your son was able to right it.
such an ethereal picture
