A Soggy Weekend

On Friday Hurricane Harvey, or his remnants I should say, paid us a visit.  Dumping seven inches of rain in my small community wasn't pleasant, though better than Houston's situation.  

This left us with a very leaky roof, missing shingles, water damaged ceilings, and two rooms where parts of the ceiling fell through.  

Our Labor Day weekend has been full of labor.  



On the plus side, we are drying out and have insurance.  Everything can be cleaned up and repaired, thank goodness.  

My trusty partner and I took a short hike down to our farm's natural springs to check how they were flowing.  




This view is from the top of the hill and usually you see a beautiful stream flowing from the hillside.  


Now you can hear the streams, springs, and waterfalls rushing noises all the way from our front porch.  

Here's hoping for a drier week.

  2. Sorry to hear this, the devastation has been terrible. At church we set up a donation box and most donations were twenties and above.

  5. It's so amazing that you got poured on and here in Oregon which has the reputation of raining all the time we haven't seen but one day of light rain in months. We are trying to get our new deck on before the rains come. I'm sorry you had those leaks and hope it all gets fixed asap. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  8. Gorgeous images as always, love the four legged furbaby image and the waterfall/brook.
    But...........a roof caving in is NOT good.
    Work is NEVER done.

  15. That is horrible news. I'm glad you have insurance but it is still so stressful to have all of that taking place!

  16. Sunday was a rainy, miserable day even here in Nashua, NH, but thankfully we did not have any damages. Glad to read that yours can be handled with work and labor, although it sure put a damper on the holiday weekend.

  17. so thankful your damage is covered and can all be repaired.
    yes, poor Houston and surrounding areas really BAD...will take years to recover, I think.

  18. Oh No! Such bad luck. I am currently watching Hurricane Irma aiming at Florida. I might have some horror stories of my own in a week. All of this distracted me from complimenting that first photo. it is quite Edward Hopper-ish.
