And it wasn’t as bad as it could have been! Messed up the gutters some, and probably didn’t help the roof any, but the roof’s in dire need of being replaced anyway.
Last night heavy storms moved through, bringing small hail (not enough to damage the roof so the insurance would cover it, darn the luck), high winds, etc. and it was Too Much for the tree next door, or at least part of it:
The guy who lives next door came over last night after the storm had moved on, asking us if our house was alright. Don was clearly a little perplexed, but assured him we were fine, thanks for asking. That’s when the neighbor said that a large branch had fallen from his tree onto the top of our house.
Hmmm….do you suppose his homeowner’s insurance would pony up for a new roof?
