Howdy all, well I guess you all would like to know
just what the heck going on with this old cowboy. Last Thursday morning about
8:00 am I was trying to get a post ready to post when I heard and a loud crash and
my wife screaming “oh my god”. I got up and head to the front room on my way to
my wife who was in the kitchen. My way was block by the celling sheetrock, I did
know if a tree or something had fell on our house or what. Using my cane I broke
thru the sheetrock to find that just the celling had fallen. I had to break
thru the sheetrock to get to my wife. I found she was unhurt and that the front
door was blocked with the celling. At this point I called 911 for the fire
department to come to our aid.
In what seemed like an hour but was only about three
minutes the firemen were there. They remove our celling and the fallen
insulation and inspected the roof. We were all standing in the front room, a
little puzzled, my wife and I and six firemen and one peace officer, I asked
the firemen was there a tree on the house or just what cause the celling to
come down. He reported that there was no tree on the house; all that has happen
is your celling fell. I then ask if it was safe for us to stay in our home or
would we have to find a place to stay till I could get the celling put back up.
The firemen said that there is nothing wrong with the roof and he did not see
any reason that we would have to leave “everything is ok you will just have to
get someone to put your celling back up.
the fireman who said the roof is fine not more then five minutes earlier
No sooner had he said that, that the
roof went flying and we all stood there looking up at blue sky. The young peace
officer went out the front door faster than the roof left, the fire captain said
“everybody out”. Now this did not to seem to be the right thing to do as the
roof was gone and the walls were blocking the wind. It was reported that the
microburst winds was 102 mph. that is faster when my horse however I believe that
my hat is just as fast as it went with the roof.

We evacuated to my sons house a mile away, I had to
go back to the house to get mine and my wife’s medications. In the driving time
a tree was blown down across the street from my house blocking the road. After getting the things we needed I went to
my insurance agent and told him that my roof had been blown off, he gave me a
phone number of the contractor they use and for me to call and he would fix my
roof. I call the contractor and he said that he would come and take a look at
it and make some arrangements to get it fix as soon as possible. Well I met with
the contractor about 5:00 pm and he said he was a roofing contractor and he
could not roof a roof that does not exist. He called the insurance agent and
told him to get a building contractor to come and put a roof on the house first.
Well they have put us up in a motel and we have had
a lot of running to do. This is the first of a series of posts on the wind
damage and all the funny thing that have happen from the start of this month. I
would like to say thank you to the folks that have bought my Christmas story.
For now thank you all for your prayers and coming by
