Our Pool is Boiling and Other Thoughts about Keeping Life Interesting




videoLee Anne and I had a great weekend celebrating our anniversary sans kids at our lake house. This was the first time we had been back at our lake house since the renovations after the huge pipe bursting incident in January. We came home at 3:30 p.m. today and at 4 p.m., this...is what happened.

To sum it up, huge hail storm and thunderstorm starts at 4:00 p.m. Both boys are napping when it really starts hailing bad. The storm woke both boys up at the exact same time and thank God it did. Right after Renzi and I met in the hallway with both boys we started hearing horrible sounds of glass breaking and we beelined for Renzi's closet where we rode out the storm. All six of our skylights and a couple of windows are all completely busted out. Water was pouring in everywhere.

Luckily, my little brother showed up and Renzi and Matt recruited Tim and the three boys got to work setting up tarp and trying to clean up as best they could. Our house is not "live able" right now, so we are camping out at the Hesketts' house down the street. We have filed our insurance claim and right now as I write this, Service Masters is at our house cleaning up.

We are so thankful that no one was hurt and that our house is still standing. We are all ok. It is just one more way to make our life interesting. Because, apparently, someone thinks our life is boring. :)
Good night all!!!
