Another storm means another roof

Thursday night we a a pretty bad storm and was waken by a roar and vibration about 11:30-12:00. It was pouring rain and I am not sure if it wind or a small tornado, but I grabbed the dogs and cat put them in crates and stuck them in the bathroom.  The roar was gone so DH and I went to see what happened outside..  We saw the roof, well about 30 ft of it blown across the house to the front yard and it landed on the dog pen fence. Oh yea!  I had to block off so the dogs couldn't go outside and we were headed back it bed, nothing we could do at midnight in pouring rain, right...  I went to get back in bed and it was wet... Water dripping in at the seams of the ceiling tiles, so we move the bed..  Another attempt and here we go again, another spot dripping...move the bed again.. And of course it is only my side that is  Let the dogs and cat out of the crates and back to bed we go....

So the next was what we found..  We lost about 20 trees around our place and they are laying north, south and east....

We had to pull this off the fence to keep the dogs in..
This one fell east

This one fell north and south...  It is hard to see but the clump of green to the left use to be taller than the tree standing in the center..

So a new roof is coming....what color do I want????  I'm leaning towards Hunter green...or tan???

The maing thing is we are safe.  I am thankful to have  DH that can fix this..  And our daughter needed firewood for next winter so they came to visit and do some cleanup..


  1. Glad everyone is safe, sounds like us. Never a dull moment and too many things happening to take care of the other stuff that needs to be done.

  2. Glad youll are safe! may we have a milder spring

  3. Thanks Ann Marie and Barbara. Yes we are very glad we are fine and it wasn't any worse. I found out our neighbors have trees down as well.
