Big Storm's A'comming

Batten the hatches. Seal the door. Get ready for roof leaks and hot popcorn. We're told that the remnants of a super typhoon are coming our way. It's to hit us sometime Tuesday with 1 to 6 inches of rain and winds up to 40 MPH. We'll see now whether the roofer who looked at our roof a couple of weeks ago knew what was talking about.

In the meantime we're trying to get ready by making sure the screens are all tightly secured and the water spouts clear.

Here are the Before pictures. Let's see if we ca get some during.

(By the way, my spell checker works on the text of the blog but not on the Title. Hence the problems this time.)


  1. Take down the flag and remove the lawn/porch chairs. Forty miles per hour won't bother your drain pipes (higher winds might pull them or crash something into them). What are all the raised spots on the roof? Are they additions to the regular roof? The roof is one of the most important parts of the house for tropical storms/hurricanes, but 40 mph shouldn't be a danger unless the roof tiles are turned up and water leaks through. Your roof will stay on at 40 mph.

  2. Don't worry about that word being misspelled.
