Default Aaaannnnnnd we have no roof...

So, we've been living in this house (with intention to buy) for the last 2 years now. The owners are friends, well, practically family and it's a nice double lot in a decent neighborhood. We're happy enough for our first home.

Until the other night, that is, when we were enjoying a storm coming through. All of a sudden there's a "THUD" and I can no longer see out the window. I go outside and see our roof hanging off the side of our house! Needless to say, we had water pouring through our rooms. The master bedroom is pretty well destroyed, and it leaked down into the kitchen below, as did the 2nd bedroom into the living room. The ceiling in the hallway is still hanging on by a thread, trying it's darnedest not to collapse. Thankfully we moved quickly enough to get our mattress downstairs into a dry room, so we still have a "bed" to sleep on.
The rain came into the house for at least an hour before we were able to get it tarped.

So now we are in total limbo - not knowing if we can stay here, or if we even want to anymore, waiting for the homeowner's insurance company to decide what they are planning to do. We've been making calls back and forth, ping ponging between the ins co and our lending bank, which is getting frustrating in its own right. And to top it all off, the owner is in Canada for the summer!

Oh the drama! Sorry, just had to rant a bit. Please continue with your regularly scheduled programming.

that does not sound fun at all. Couple years ago, we came home from work and it was pouring rain....in the dining room. which was odd cause usually it doesn't rain in the house. toilet gasket broke in the upstairs bathroom and ran all day long. Bathroom, dining room, floors, table, ceiling, walls, rec -room ceiling, walls, carpeting....it all seemed endless. like we just wanted to slowly close the door and walk back out. I know it sucks right now but hang in there, it will work out and in the end, you will have a great story. If you want me to find your friends in Canada, let me know..lol

This made me laugh. I needed that, thank you! We definitely wanted to just close the door and back away slowly.

Thank you. We're trying to get this all worked out. The hardest part is figuring out where to keep the dogs during all the construction that's going to need to be done.

Thanks, Sug. It was just your run of the mill thunderstorm! Well, until all of a sudden the wind started whipping through and took our roof with it... I think the rash of storms we've been having lately just proved too much.

Thank you. Sometimes you just need to get stuff out. My head is still a little spinny from the whole ordeal.
