Efter stormen 2 -- After the Storm 2

   Tirsdag opdagede vi at også den hvide garage havde taget skade i stormen. To af tagpladerne
 var blæst af, og hønsene fik rigeligt frisk luft.Pladerne stod som spydspidser nede i plænen, så det var nok meget godt at vi havde holdt os indenfor.

Tuesday we discovered that the old garage where the hens live also were damaged by the storm. A part of the roof had been blown of, had hit a tree and big splinters sat in our lawn. Well and good that we had stayed inside during the storm.


     Stormen havde jo revet en hel del tagsten af Hvalrossens bolig, og Skribenten havde ringet efter Falck, for at de skulle komme og dække af. Onsdag ringede en venlig dame og fortalte at de nok - hvis ikke der kom akutte ting i vejen - ville komme fredag. Det lød helt fint. Undertaget var, så vidt vi kunne se, ikke i stykker, så det ville ikke regne ind, og det kunne fint vente.
     Torsdag hentede Uglemor som sædvanligt Ugleunger fra skole og købte lidt ind, og da hun kom hjem holdt denne her i indkørslen:

The tree that fell in the storm had swept off a part of the roof tiles from the Walrus' place. We had phoned Falck, our local emergency assistance company. They had phoned back, promising to arrive Friday if noting more urgent came up. This was fine with us. The watertight membrane was intact, and the tree could not fall any further. We were fine with waiting.
Thursday MotherOwl as usual picked up Owlets from school and did some shopping. As we arrived home this sight met us.


     Falck var kommet en dag tidliger end ventet. Heldigvis havde Trolden haft tidligt fri fra skole, og kunnet tage imod dem. De klatrede rundt på taget og svaede grene over med en stor motorsav. Inden de gik, var yaget dækket med en forsvarligt fastsurret presenning. Det var vi taknemmelige for.

 They had arrived a day earlier than promised. Two sturdy med armed with chainsaws, tarpaulins and rope. They climbed over the tree and up on the roof. When they left the whole house was covered by a securely fastened green tarpaulin. We were grateful that we did not have to find a chainsaw etc. and do the job ourselves. This is when an insurance is helpful.

  1. Uglemor,

    Your roofs sound better constructed than ours. There's no waterproof membrane under our tiles. If a tile slips out of place the roof leaks. When we see drips of water coming from the ceiling we know something is wrong and Andy gets up on the roof to check the tiles! You will be glad when all the damage has been fixed.
