A New Roof...and Gutters Too!!!

I am pretty sure the whole point of Outdoor Wednesday is to share the beautiful outdoors. I look forward to seeing the incredible photographs of your heavily blooming flowers and shrubs from those blessed with green thumbs. I love all of the pictures of romantic garden benches, water fountains, birds and bees, outdoor weddings, picnics, your kids at play, etc.!! Then, there are those who post their exotic vacation destinations in pictures.

I am totally in awe of you guys...even a little jealous.

This week I have some great outdoor photographs of our yard and house.

Can you say hail damage???

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday

  3. Well, at least you have a new roof.. trying to find the bright side. April was a weird weather month for us too. We had a freak snow too. I'll bet the new roof looks great.

    I also know what you mean about those vacation photos, I'd love to go visit the places we see. There are always so many wonderful vacation photos. Love them.

    Have a great day,

    Jenn

  5. Wow, that's quite a storm. We experienced a short hail storm here in CA last month, weird weather!

  6. That was some storm. I hope that no one was hurt. Buildings are easier to "fix" than people. I know it's awful to live through, but it will all eventually get done. I love the blue sky in your first photo. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the holiday weekend. Blessings...Mary

  11. Oh dear, that must have been a nasty one. But all's well now with the summer and all. I guess you'll be busy patching up those damages caused by it.

    Now, should I still say Happy Outdoor Wednesday? :-)

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday.

  14. How frustrating for you! Its been kind of cloudy here the last couple days and I was irritated with it, but now my attitude has changed. I'm just thankful it's not storming! Thanks for the change in perspective.

  15. Sorry about your damage, we farm here in Idaho (famous potatoes) so we are always worried by hail storms. Outdoor Wednesday, with a twist, thanks for sharing!

  16. Wow that's a big project. Congrats on your new roof but sorry for all the hail damage!

  17. This is one of those necessary things that cost a hunk of money and don't really show. However, I know you're happy to be having it DONE! Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

  18. Hi Rhonda, I saw another Rhonda on the OW list and just had to drop by; there are not too many of us!

    I saw on the news recently a storm with baseball-sized hail and thought that was ridiculous! Sorry for the damage you had with yours, but glad to see your roof is on the way to compete recovery.

  19. Ouch, too bad about the hail damage. On the other hand, it looks like the repair guys had nice weather to work in :)

  22. Wow ... that must have been some storm! We get storms here in MA, but I have never seen that kind of damage from hail!

  23. Wow! I've only seen hail about 5 times in my whole life, and nothing as big as that!

  24. We have had large hail here too. I hope your new roof is complete and you can have a quiet home again soon.

  25. Hi Rhonda, I am so sorry about this. We know what this feels like....having had this happen to us several years back.

    Hope everything goes well. Thanks for your visit to Bella Vista. It is lovely to meet you.

  26. I am smiling as we just put on a roof in April and I posted about it when I first started my blog. The week we put the roof onto the house it rained cats and dogs but it seemed more like cows and cars:) It was the most rain this part of SC had received in one week in April in History. We did not have leaks before but they took off the old roof and the next day when they were suppose to put on the new shingles it rained for days straight. Don't even ask the mess inside our house. I can laugh now but I was sure crying then:) I bet your house looks so pretty with your new roof.

  27. Now that is what you call hail?!?!? Glad to see your new roof is getting on before you get anymore storms. We had some pretty hard rain and thunderstorms yesterday, but no hail, thank goodness.
    Thanks for sharing!

  28. What is it about hail? We stand watching as it falls- wondering how long it will last, the noise, the size... Then we come to realize the damage it could cause-to vehicles, to homes like yours, to family farms... We have had hail several times in the last month but luckily no damage.

  29. Oh I had to come back and say that I forgot about the banging..glad you could run away today. I found all sorts of things in my attic when they were done so check your attic when they are finished for slivers of wood maybe but wear shoes up there:)
