The Sky is falling....the sky is falling....

Not literally - just the one that is over our house.

Yesterday I came home after a morning of data entry at the Sowers and was surprised to find bright light inside the house. Hmmm...that's nice, I thought!! Wait a minute - that's not normal (our house normally is pretty dark inside - think bat cave...:)). Hmmmm.....looking at the floor I see piles of shattered roof tile. Now first of all you have to realize that we have bare tiles as a roof. There isn't an 'inside' roof except in the bedrooms where we have a wooden covering. Thank goodness - as I look up - BIG hole. BIG cracks through several sheets of the cement tiles. Not good. Daylight throughout the dining room, living room, and Riley's room. I like daylight and fresh air fine - the problem is the rain and now it's better opportunity to enter the house.

Anyway - now we have a big gaping hole in the roof. We still have no idea how it got there because of the strange placement (or displacement as the case may be...) but nothing was stolen and no one was hurt. We're just praying for the rain to hold off until the landlord can fix it. If not - we'll be getting wet.

At least I have a dryer I could throw things into...

I'm thankful for the strategic crashing and it's lack of casualities...personal or property.
