Houston, we have a problem.

I hope everyone had a much better weekend then I did....

It rained for four straight days, in the 24 hours between Thursday morning and Friday morning we got 9 inches of rain.

Here is what I came home to on Friday...

Here is what I came home to on Saturday...

More has fallen down, but I am to depressed to take more pictures of it. To make all things better he had no idea that there was water damage in the living room. It has never leaked once. I mean I knew the roof was bad but the leak was in the office. And the BEST part is that since the roof is not covered by our insurance (since it was in such bad shape) they will not cover anything that is a result of a bad roof...just wonderful!

On top of everything else, it stopped raining on Sunday...it rained this morning (Monday) and suppose to be thunderstorms tomorrow (Tuesday).

Here is how far they have gotten on the roof.

The shingles and other stuff have been sitting in the driveway since last Tuesday, it has also be raining since last Tuesday. 

I got about a dozen phone calls from the delivery person trying to find our house. It's a lot of fun living down a road that doesn't have a street sign.  To make her feel better I told her I have driven by a road a million times. Of course I did give her some really good land marks but I don't think she really listened.

 We have a nice pretty trailer in the driveway as well.

Look even a sign! ( I really love Lowe's I will probably frame that sign.)

Some day these wonderful people from Lowe's will be able to come and actually start and finish my roof. Then I get to go through all of the fun of fixing the living room ceiling.

Hope you all had a better weekend then I did. Anyone get crazy amounts of rain? Is it still raining?

Over and out,

  1. Oh no! Gosh, the irony...just when you were about to replace the roof anyway.

    1. Roof is officially replaced! Now onto fixing the ceiling, good thing it is the summer time so I don't have to worry to much about heat loss when I tear down the old insulation.

  2. Oh my GOSH that is awful. I can't imagine coming home to that. :( Good thing it's on its way to being fixed! And that Lowe's sign framed would be hilarious.

    Answering your question about RAC here since I don't see an email: you can use the boards for the games as well as the pieces as long as you do something with the board and don't just hang it on the wall or something. I hope that helps!

  3. Oh. my. Um.. at least you don't need to scrap popcorn off the ceiling?

    That's pretty hellacious..

    1. I'm glad to hear that my water problem makes you feel a little better about your water problem.

      Way to look at the positive sides to things.
