THANKS....

to each one of you who left supportive and sympathetic messages over the last few days. I really appreciate them. We are knee deep in phone calls, email and quotes. Over the last two days, quite a few people have surveyed the situation and offered advice and referrals. We have yet to see the insurance adjuster, but he promises that someone will be here as soon as possible. There are hundreds (maybe thousands) of people in NC who have worse problems than we do, and I understand they have to come first - but it is so frustrating to have to wait. 

Posting and visiting will be sparse, if any at all, over the next week or so. As soon as there is anything to report....I'll be back. Y'all take care now, ya' heah?

So sorry you had the tree come down and damage your house. Hope they're successfully removing the broken chimney portion without more damage and then the tree, too.

My dtr in Richmond, VA area said she feared for trees falling around her house, but fortunately none did. She said they've previously experienced worst wind and rain than Irene brought and was grateful that was so. Her friends with a new beach house they purchased in recent years in the Outer Banks are anxious to get down there and check it out.

One thing retirement has taught me is patience. A couple of years ago, when a big old tree went down (but not on our house!), I took about 18 months to "finish" cutting it up (the rest of it will lay as it fell until it rots into the earth.)

A few months after the tree fell, during the first heat wave of the summer, our a/c went out. I told the repair folks to put me last on the list as there were no babies or invalids living here and I could just darned well keep myself busy in the basement (Hunky Husband was on Red Cross assignment then, too!) They were appreciative of the breathing room that gave them in scheduling.

But...a tree leaning on my house would probably make me a little antsier!

Hang in there Judy!

We'll be here for you, Judy!!! Things like this make me realize how lucky we are in Ohio that we don't suffer such disasters. Snow melts and tornadoes are short-lived. I'm keeping good thoughts for all y'all down there.

You take care too! Take it easy!

You're in my thoughts ... I'll be looking forward to good news soon.
We'll miss you.

I will miss you! But do hope you can get sorted soon. Its so frustrating waiting, even when you know there are loads of people with bigger problems. At least you are safe and dry.

Will be thinking of you.

Am I remembering correctly that you cannot remove the tree until the insurance adjuster sees it? Yikes! That has to be a terrible concern as you sit in your house with a tree leaning on it. Yes, we will know why you are absent and will eagerly await hearing about your restoration.
