Freaky Friday


We call this photo 
Cat on a leaky roof
(instead of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof)
You might remember we had a ton of rain a few weeks ago, which leaked around our chimney flashing. That was repaired.  On Tuesday 2/16 we had straight line winds come through our
neighborhood.  They blew the glider off the back porch, blew our porch ceiling fan up against the ceiling and ripped up the repaired flashing and shingles.  BUT we didn't know this until it rained really hard on 2/21...lo and behold we had more leaking inside. So they wrapped our chimney in 
tarp.


 Then we had tornado warnings and watches all day on 2/23.  Heavy winds all day
they huffed and puffed until they blew our neighbors basketball goal over on 
his car.  (This is where Kasi lives...the dog Mom walks). 
Some how both cars only had minor scratches on them no dents and it missed the
windshield too.



The basketball goal has been there for nearly 15+ years and never ever blown over.  It kept falling over all day long.  Finally Kasi's Dad moved it to here.  Any buddy wanna play a game of hoops?
I'm happy to report the roof was repaired on 3/2/16 and the tarp is G O N E

  9. I'll shoot for hoops with you, Madi! Sounds like our weather in Virginia. We had tornado warnings here the same day--Feb. 23--and an EF3 hit the next county over. Scary! I'm glad you got the roof repaired.

  13. I'm glad you got your roof fixed! That basketball goal was sure tired, wasn't it? I bet standing up for 15 years is exhausting. I'd be falling over too!

  15. That kind of weather is scary! Glad you all survived and the roof is fixed. about 10 yrs ago we lost about an 8 x 4 foot section of shingles off our roof due to high winds.
