Halloween

November 1, 2013

Vera was visiting and we had Stacy & Brad’s children for an overnight and then the day and evening of Halloween while they were doing trail riding in Indiana.  We went to Marmon Valley farms for pony rides in the afternoon and then did trick or treat in the evening.

Halloween Night

The wicked witch (wind) of the west struck at 11:45pm on Halloween Night.  I was sound asleep and must have jumped a foot out of bed when a huge limb blew off our tulip poplar in the front yard and hit the roof above our bedroom.  Plaster filled the air and I thought one of our windows blew out.  The electricity was out, so I got out my headlamp, flash light and rain jacket to survey the damage.  I checked the attic and discovered one of our chimneys was gone!  The fire department came but was unable to help.  These pictures are from the next morning when a tarp was put over the chimney hole on the main roof.  This is going to be a long term step by step process to get all of this repaired.
