the damage bodil did


this was husband's wood drying barn.
look how it lifted the entire foundation out of place.


that amazing pinkish-orange light is the sunrise.
and the roof is folded neatly in half


husband got up there and fixed that hole in the roof during the storm.
he's a keeper, i tell you.

the winds haven't really subsided yet, tho' the skies are mostly clear. it continues to blow out there, tho' not with the same force as around 5 p.m. yesterday. we didn't lose any trees here at the property around the house. but we haven't checked our forest yet. a neighbor had a couple of trees down over his own driveway and couldn't even get out. the big barn next door shed a whole lot of sharp shards of roofing onto our lawn. i'm glad we weren't standing out there when they blew free. all of the animals (horses, bunnies, chickens and cats) are safe. and so are we. and that's what matters.

Thank heavens you are all safe. Terrible shame about the barn. But it can be rebuilt. Lots of damage in Wales and Scotland. Friends there safe as well.

Oh thank goodness. Robert had a time of it at home too, but West Cottage is ok and so is he and Theo. In the village, a huge old yew blew over in the graveyard and toppled some grave stones but missed the church. (parish email came this morning) Hope the shed can be put back together again.
