Tis the Season
From 2Millionth Web Log

Red Stick, Blue Roofs

I had the final five hundred dollars or so of roof repairs done a couple of weeks ago...just in time for a new storm season. The grand total was around six hundred fifty dollars...and, to repeat, I'm EXTREMELY lucky. See here.

They say indications point to a quiet season--let's sure as hell hope so. Decided to skip on the tax holiday promotion mostly because I took care of most things incrementally over the last nine months or so when Gustav woke me up. Crank radio? Check. Generator that I hope to never have to use? Check. Flashlights, batteries, power packs...containers that hold plenty of water and will go IMMEDIATELY into the freezer in the event of even a hurricane watch? Yep.

Wish us luck.

  1. How's your roof holding up? Rainy season's a lot of pain, especially if it generates even nastier weather phenomena, like twisters or hails. Cost is nothing compared to the safety it provides! Good luck and brace yourselves for more!
