The Sun Will Come Out..Next Month

With apologies to Little Orphan Annie, it seems that we won’t see the sun for quite a while. Like Zee, I awoke at about the same time this morning (after doing so all night as well) to see torrential rains and winds out the window. I was up and down all night because of the roof damage we suffered and the resultant leaks in our living room and kitchen. Hourly checks of the ceiling for further leaks seemed prudent, but fortunately no new ones were found.

I’m not even in the mood to go out today, but if the rains ease up we will have to in order to try and buy a tarp to nail in places over the most damaged spots on the roof. Forecast calls for rain most of the week, and then we might be looking at Ivan next weekend, so it will need to be covered if possible if only so it can be blown off by hurricane number 9 of the season.

Everyone stay safe.

    Sorry to hear about your roof damage getting worse.

    I’d figure grumpiness would catch up with us. But my heart goes out to those who may venture out to return home from the shelters, only to find that their home isn’t there. :o(

    Those poor people who stayed in Shelters 2 1/2 to 3 days while riding out Frances deserve a award. Especially for not killing each other in the process.
