Happy Sunday! I hope you’re tucked in safe and cozy this morning. We had a brief climb into the 60s this past week but it’s a chilly 19 degrees and breezy this morning.
Here’s a little bird’s-eye and waterview from our roof. We were up on the roof accessing storm damage and taking photos for our homeowner’s insurance from some rogue winds that blew through on Friday.
Beware of the orange cell of the storm and take cover from flying sheets of metal roofing!
I had a ‘heavy precipitation in your area’ alert from my weather app on my phone but no warning or indication of high winds associated with the rain. It’s no uncommon for us to have high winds off the lake or lake wind advisories, but this took us by surprise.
The wind was gusting high enough to rip steel roof panels off our porch and give our satellite dish a good lick.
Our power was out from 5 pm on Friday until mid morning Saturday and we spent yesterday cleaning up storm debris and tree limbs. I was thanking my lucky stars the tree limbs that fell on the patio missed the glass top on the table.
The intact steel roof panels are now a wavy configuration.
We found some of our panels 100 yards away in the field behind my Potting Shed. I was imagining my pots and watering cans blown around like confetti, but other than some broken shrubs from things blown off the porch of the shed, there was no damage to speak off. I was glad everything is dormant so there were no broken flowers!
Our 48 x 60 inch irrigation cover is a little worse for wear after its bumpy flight from the shoreline to the field by my shed.
We were happy not to be fishing our chairs out of the water yesterday!
We’re covering the roof with a tarp today until the roof can be repaired.
We cut our Adagio Maiden Grass back around the end of February. The contrast of the feathery, golden plumes with the blue of the water adds some welcome winter interest.
There’s a chance of snow flurries in our forecast later this week. Hope you’re staying warm and cozy. ♥
