Not An Earthquake, but....
So late yesterday afternoon when the house began to shake and the ceiling roared, I thought it was an earthquake. We both came running from ends of the house to see our outdoor living room smashed to smithereens! Luckily we were not sitting out there as usual. For once, killer heat worked in our favor. It was just too much for me though. I was wiped out and done in for today too.
Bless the friend who came with a chain saw and helped, even carrying away a large portion of the limbs and branches to his country burn pile. We still have quite a mess, but gradually is looking better. I replaced the umbrella today which is more necessary now that the shade is gone. I have dumped broken pots, tossed flowers or reported some saved plants. The hole in the roof is repaired. Tomorrow morning DH says he will replace the deck rail and hand rail that were destroyed. Steps made is as did deck floor and deck furniture.
What will tomorrow bring I wonder? Frankly, I am tired of surprises!
