There's a hole in the bucket.....and my roof, two



      Got some of the tree off my roof.  Found 2 holes around 6 " across.  One still has the branch.  Now how to plug it until we can get it repaired.  Because guess what its suppose to do all week?  Why rain of course.  Can you tell we are getting very tired of this all.  Still haven't heard from the insurance man except to tell me I have to pay 1% of our appraised value of house.  Guess I am glad I don't have a very expensive house.  Since I was taking picture anyway, aren't these pretty.

I hope you get that roof fixed soon. Send some of that rain down here but no storms please. Those flowers are pretty. Looks like one got some storm damage. Some sort of bugs are eating my zinnias but I haven't seen anything on them yet. Helen

I hope you can get something sorted out before the rains come. That's going to be a real mess if the water pours through the roof. The flowers are gorgeous! Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/

I'm so thankful you and Rick weren't hurt!    I know you were scared, I would have truly been shaking in my boots!!   I hope the ins. co. doesn't give you any trouble.   Ours has always come right through for us.  No hassle, no problems.

I'm so sorry for your weather related problems.  I really do undestad.  When we lived in a mobile home, we were in a tornado three different times.  The first two times the damage wasn't too  bad, but the third time our home was picked up and turned onto its side.  And I had three small children, and none of us had any clothes except what we were wearing.  It was a very difficult time, but we survived, and I know you will too.  Just take it one step at a time.

Good luck,
Frances

What a mess!  You sure must be getting tired of all of this.  I hope you can get that patched before the rain starts again.  Chris  (The flowers are gorgeous!)

Well, pictures 2 and 3 are very pretty.  That first one, however.....how to put this gently....I just don't really care for it at all.  I guess it could have been worse, but this isn't going to be any fun at all to deal with.  I hope your insurance will get on it, and get this all fixed up for you.  There are advantages to being in a less than extravagent house.

I'm so sorry Jules.  When I had damage from the neighbors huge tree, I had to pay FIRST & get reimbursed if I wanted it done in a "timely" fashion(yeah, i did!). Some people cannot even afford to do that...  Of course, no one will repay you for all you really have to go thru with this.  I am just glad you & R were not hurt. ~Mary

There's an old song called "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It," I believe it's by Ernest Tubb

Sorry for the storm damage to the house, but glad you & Rick are okay.  Hope everything gets fixed quickly!  Monsoon storms here, thank goodness for the SUV!  De ;)

i didn't get the alert for this entry!! i'm glad rick was able to patch that hole until your adjuster can get to you.  at least you won't have to worry about rain.  the coneflowers are beautiful.  i planted some 2 years ago and they really made a nice showing this summer.  can you tell me if you are supposed to cut them once they fade?
