Grand Bend Tornado

Hello Quilters!

A big thank you to all of you that have sent emails and made phone calls to see if Hubby and I are okay.  We are not hurt........just in a state of shock, I think.  Who ever thinks that they will be in a tornado?????

We had three trees come through the roof over our master bedroom.  Here's what that looks like.

The walls are cracked and the main roof trusses are broken.  Our builder came out and thinks that they will need to replace the entire south wall of the house plus some of the eastern side and we will need a new roof and trusses.  That means we will need to move out for a bit.  We won't know the complete details of the reconstruction for a couple of week.  In the meantime, we are living in the basement in one of the guest rooms so we are fine.

The tree guys have been here for 2 days trying to get the trees out of the roof.  Today they brought in a crane.  There are some very nasty noises coming from the bedroom!!!!  As long as there isn't a big crash I guess we are okay.....

We have lost close 15-20 mature trees mostly oaks and pines.  Anyone need some free firewood???

The good news is.......my studio is fine.  

Again, thanks for all your calls and emails.  It's nice to know we have such caring friends.
