Default My Roof Blew Off

So I am sitting in my office and I hear Casey yell the roof just blew off. I'm thinking she must be already. So I go in the front and there is a pile of shingles. Looks like I'm off to fix the roof. Wind--> <--ME

It was windy up north too.

Had a couple of trees blocking the road when I left. Good thing I had a hacksaw and hi-lift jack.

When I got home, the cover on the hottub was off and the lawn chairs were in a pile.

It wasnt as bad as she made it seem. We lost more than a few but not enough to make a claim. The wind tore both ridge vents off. Just enough to make more work for me.

Sorry about your roof. We lost power for about 6 hours yesterday.

One thing for sure, the trees around us lost their leaves!!
