Oh, no! The hole in your gutter looks like a hoof, are you sure it was hail and not raining cows?

Like the frog...

John, time to call the insurance company, looks like a disaster area to me. Life in Texas, never a dull moment.

Wow! What's your recovery Plan???
What's your priorities? How bad was the Dam damage?

Didn't know frogs lived in the desert. Sure has beautiful eyes.

Looks like you have quite a bit of work to put things back the way they were. Is your water catchment under all that gush of water?

I was wondering myself about the dam damage.

I used vinyl gutters on a prodject once. I learned my lesson , and had to replace 4,000 bucks worth of gutter on an apartment prodject because it didnt last.

What caused the turbine to come down?

help us learn about what we can do to keep this thing from happening in the future on our projects.

Sorry for the spelling, I know its project. I just have these quirks when I type. Too bad I cant dictate my blog text. lol

John, what is the highest wind gust you have seen. I was checking into metal buildings for my place and they specified a 90 mph load factor?

Looks like it's time to play catch-up, John. Hope it does not delay the greenhouse roof project for too long. Good luck with the clean-up, and recovery.

The wife and I will be heading your way in November, for the Chili Cook-Off. Would love to check in on you, if it's o.k. Let me know if you need anything from the big city, and we'll bring it along.

Wow, thats a lot more damage that I was expecting to see. This is my first time commenting on your blog. Keep up the good work, this is one of my favorites.

You can still shower au natural! And God sent you more rain (you have to be more specific in your prayers).

Looks like the solar panels may have lost some back support in the middle (or is that an optical illusion).
