Hurricane Ophelia kicked my ass.
BELOW: This huge tree in my backyard was blown down and completely uprooted. Half of the tree is in my neighbor's backyard. It also knocked down our apple tree when it fell...we are hoping that we may be able to salvage the apple tree once this pine tree has been removed.
BELOW: The ceiling in Lauren's bedroom is hanging after many inches of rain fell through the holes in the roof, causing the sheetrock and insulation to become wet and fall. The smell of wet insulation is not good, lemme tell ya. Blech. Lauren has moved into Alex's room until her bedroom is repaired.
My brother's construction crew came and patched the roof and removed the tree from my roof on Friday morning.
BELOW: As you can see I have a lot of yard work to do....well I won't be doing it myself but I will be hiring someone else to do it. As soon as this mess is cleaned up I am going to be removing the remaining 7 pine trees in my yard to prevent this catastrophe from happening again!! Pine trees suck.
BELOW: After the power came back on, we came home and started cleaning. I had to throw out everything in my fridge and go buy more food. As you can see, Buttons was very glad the power was back on, and he was able to cool off. He is chillin.
