Uh OH!!!

Well, we didn’t lose power, but as we feared, the heavy, wet snow brought down branches. And when we got up this morning, it was to discover this…

A branch from this tree fell right on the fiver. Crying face

Our first priority was getting it off the roof, so Harry went up and cut the branches on top of it.

IMG_1011The good news is…nothing went THROUGH the roof.

But it looks like there could be some damage to the rubber of the roof. We will know more when more of the snow melts. We haven’t opened the slide yet, but it appears that nothing was damaged there. But we will be calling the insurance company about the roof, if nothing else.

It could have been SO much worse, so we are thankful for that, but still wasn’t a great way to start a day. <sigh>

  2. Oh no! Hope there's no damage to the roof. The snow looks pretty but that can be deceptive, huh? :)

  5. So glad to hear that it wasn't worse than it was. I am sure I know how you felt when you first saw it. We felt the same way when we blew a tire on Serenity and saw the damage that did.

    Take care Jessica and tell Harry to watch his footing up on that roof.

  6. It's too early for snow. Hope that you don't have any damage to the RV. Are you going to get an RV cover?

  8. Oh my gosh! I really hate to hear about the tree falling on the 5er. So glad it appears nothing was terribly damaged but nothing like that is good. I'm glad Harry was able to get the limbs cut off the roof but he needs to be really careful up there with all the ice and snow. We'll cross our fingers that any damage is minimal!!

  9. When I insured the Alfa I kept talking about "what if a tree falls on it?" I hope it never does, but it miight.

    The snow really does look pretty from a distance :-}
