Diane, I hope you'll be able to have these repairs done quickly and w/o too much expense. I hope that most of the damage is cosmetic, too.

Your efforts and energies are going to be needed elsewhere.

Glad to see Velma and Roxie survived their adventure none the worse for wear!

Sending good thoughts to you all.

Thank you, ae. The tree has been removed from the roof, and our regular do-everything man is coming in the morning to do the carpentry work. If he can, he will also go ahead and lay the shingles, since we have some in our possession already.

We have a neighbor who does gutters, so we're going to call him to replace that front gutter.

A lot of the stuff has been cleared, and a whole lot of it has to be chipped and taken away, something we haven't dealt with yet. The roof tree was an oak, and a giant red oak fell--those will be split for firewood by a man we have hired before to do that with downed trees.

A couple of bowls of charcoal in the freezer have removed the bad smell. We still don't have cable, but we have a battery-powered radio, and I have my notebook and my backup dial-up software. We are so much better off than so many other people.
