Oh my goodness, where do I start? Someone asked me two weeks ago why I wasn't doing the blog anymore, and I said there was nothing to say. Wrong! Wednesday, August 4th/10 was NOT our lucky day. Two oaks from the south side near Hamilton's porch fell in a "micro burst" and went through our roof. That was one thing we HADN'T replaced. The arborist said there was about 8 tons sitting on the roof. Anna from next door counted the rings, and there were 147 - what a shame! All 3 dormers - yes, even the one on the other side - were damaged, the tree went right through the top of the roof, and ripped a big hole in the bottom near the kitchen window. At first they thought it might be a teardown, but now they're saying just the second floor is done. They won't know for sure till they start ripping down gyprock and ceilings/floors. What a horrible shame!
