He brought in generators to keep the walk in freezer and fridge running so the food didn't spoil.
"With these conditions, we probably weren't going to have any record breaking business," he said. "But it's always terrible to turn people away."
The scattered power outages also caused some traffic signals to do dark. Police said a few crashes were reported as a result. Other intersections were flooded with several inches of water.
The wind brought down trees and branches onto power lines around the area. Firefighters closed SW 61st Drive after the wind caused a tree to fall onto power lines.
Dozens of neighbors like Christian Steinbrecher were in the dark.
"It's inconvenient," he said. "You've got plans and all of a sudden you can't do that. I was going to work in my shop and do stuff down there. But without electricity, my saws are not going to run and I can't see what I'm doing."
Some of the worst storm damage was reported in Hillsboro. A huge tree came down right on an elderly woman's home when she was inside.
Luckily, she wasn't hurt.
"It didn't damage the cabinet with my good china and it didn't damage my dining room table," said Marie Lehner. "But it did break the window and came down between my dining room table and the outside wall."
The damage was bad enough that the home wasn't safe to occupy. The Red Cross put her up in a hotel on Saturday evening until the damages can be repaired.
