Out of the Blue

It's a little distracting at the moment, as there are guys hammering on the roof as we get some flashing around the chimney repaired. We were expecting them next week, but they showed up today, and we suspect they are trying to get routine work like this out of the way, as tomorrow's hurricane is forecast to be pretty severe, so they are probably looking to clear their plate in advance of roof repairs. Naturally, we have our fingers crossed that we won't be one of their customers for that, as no one wants to have to fix their roof, much less twice within a week.

I live in Louisiana and have had many hurricane run-ins over the last 2 decades and all I can say is I hope everyone stays safe. No power and cold food is an inconvenience but when no one loses a life, every little nitpick that people have doesn't really matter.

To everyone in the path: Stay safe.
