Boy... my Monday was a BAD DAY. It was like Friday the 13th went on a weekend bender and showed up monday morning!!! The season hasn't gotten off to the best start for me, and saturday evening it started raining, which became serious storming. The rain quit for monday morning. But the damage was done, and the wind has never stopped blowing. I started out to work in the morning expecting a messy day of cleanups and such. All was fine for a while although rough... but then the calls started and the ____ hit the fan. I spent the rest of the day trying to be "the pacifier" and trying to work too. I ended up having to meet with 5 VIP's in-friggin-person and a 6th for a phone conference between then and 5:00 to straighten things out, smooth things over, correct things, and otherwise play the pacifier to avoid some problems and devistating losses, etc... Particulars not important... just the fact I had to do all that on top of a bad work day. Finally I waxed things over, and had so much for one day I said screw it... not making much progress. So I thought I'd try to get home before dark. Dunno if that was a good thing or a bad thing. But I can tell you this... I pulled up to the house and noticed part of my roof had blown off my house during the storm and landed over 100 feet down into my back yard. I don't know when it happened. During the wind/rain/hail/half-tornado Sunday, or during the aftermath winds all day Monday.... and I don't have an attic access to go up and check things out. It was too late to get the ball rolling with the insurance company. The wind is still blowing like mad... and it's not forecast to stop... and rain is in the forecast also. I don't know that I can wait on the insurance with all things considered, and it's even more doubtful I can get a roofing crew over here instantly. So I may get stuck roofing my house myself, possibly stuck paying out-of-pocket... on top of the turmoil already going on.... AND I have to cut those two checks to Uncle Sam tomorrow. I guess it could always be worse though.
