started the repairs...

That must have been quite a wind...found roof parts 100 yards from the site.  Two 4x6 porch beams ( 8' and 9' long) were 60 yards away.  I figure the catastrophic failure happened because I had yet to finish fully securing the porch beams to the porch posts.  Fortunately, I can reuse the beams and most of the rafters and sheathing.  Collected all the parts and reinstalled the east and middle gables and the bathroom beam this morning.  Didn't find any other damage.  The plan is to get all the repairs (and extra securing) done by the end of the weekend.  90,99,75,0,B

Storm Damage...

The severe thunderstorms have been relentless this week but I have dodged most of them.  Lots of people on the ranch have had a lot of damage.  Had another cell pass this afternoon that wasn't in the forecast that had very high winds.  The Casita lost the south half of the roof in this one.  It could have been a whole lot worse... 87,91.73,0,B

The cross I bear this year...

Matthew 10:38  And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

last night's storm...

This cell missed me by about 5 miles...but I ended up getting three tenths of an inch out of another cell that I just caught the edge of.  I like lighting...when it is far away.  This photo is pretty grainy because it is a still from some video I was shooting during the storm.  86,95,74,0,B
