The next day the warnings were coming again, and this time the wind was stronger. I had to pull everyone into the back room because it got so bad. The wind lifted our entire roof up a bit in one corner, sending a layer of sand everywhere. It also ripped off an outer layer off the roof completely so the rain just kept coming in all throughout our front room. For the next couple hours it sounded like someone was walking around on our roof. I think part of the roof semi detached and was flopping around.
We talked to the owners and the next morning someone came out to do a patch job on the roof. It doesn't look good but the rain did stop coming through our ceiling! Tomorrow the insurance people are coming over to check it out.
The kids loved it! They kept asking questions about it so when we got home we did a mini lesson on rainbows and how they are made.
This was a pretty big storm for here. Bob and I seem to bring natural disasters with us when we go places. A few years ago when we went to Japan they had that huge tsunami. Then last summer in Michigan they had a huge storm with trees down in our yard and power out for days. I'm just glad that we had a storm here and not another tsunami. We would be completely wiped out in our current location.
