May 9 – 38/100 When It Rains, It Pours


If you have been reading along the last few weeks, you know we had a tree fall on the house and into the kitchen exactly thirty two days ago.  Thank the gods the tree is cut down because if it wasn’t the other half would definitely be in the house too.

We had another wind event this afternoon. I swear it was even worse than that one last month. The whole house shook and roar from the force of the wind.  Torrential down pour, lightening, thunder that just didn’t stop, hail, and then the wind.  It ripped the tarps off the roof, the plastic inside then caved in from the amount of water coming in.

It.Was.A.Mess!  Everything got covered in rain and muck from the tree pollen and leaves.

The whole thing lasted maybe five minutes, but felt like forever. The cats, ha! Bless them, pretty much could care less about what happened. The dogs however, were all shaking and crying.  It was all we could do to huddle them together and love on them, assuring them it was going to be okay.

When all was said and done, the kitchen was again a disaster. Got the insurance company called ASAP. They in turn called the restoration people to get their asses out here and fix the tarps.  They were out here quick enough and had us bandaged in about an hour.

All we can do is hope these trusses are built and ready soon, then we need three consecutive dry days for them to be installed and the rest of the construction repairs to be done.

We have more rain coming in Friday and Saturday. Possible wind too.  This all can’t be finished soon enough.
