Special thanks go to Maple Leaf Mommy and Mom vs the Boys for hosting this Friday Photo Share.
I usually try to have all my posts and photos of a positive nature. However, after going through a whole night and day of howling winds and pounding, rentless, rains, today I find it a difficult and daunting task.
This personal assault by Mother Nautre on our property, let alone our nerves and recalled memories of a similar day in 1976, have left me a little shaken.
So the following are a few photos of the type of things we'll be dealing with over the next several days.
I am very aware, that these are only minor compared to what others may have encountered and what other parts of the world have endured and for this I am very grateful. And I can only say, "May God be with them." But this is our story for today.
|Our door blew open and was torn off it's casing, as it crashed against the side of the garage.|
|Some of the downed branches from the maple tree, littered a now bare, yard.|
|More downed limbs from the maple trees scattered over the yard, with the gated standing lopsided against the wind.|
|Some of the most expensive and difficult to repair damage is missing shingles and tar paper from the roof.|
|A downed cedar tree, now just a snack for the wild deer, until it's cut down for firewood later in the Spring.|
|We removed the center piece of the gate to keep the whole thing from ripping from the now softened grounds.But it now stands partially leaning against the winds.|
|This inside water damage will take several days, a fan, heat and a dehumidifier, to dry, before it's safe to walk on again.|
