Default Hurricane Isabel.... The Morning After

Let me first thank a very loud but reliable Coleman generator for letting me still get on OSO!!!

Ohhhh now the not so good.

Crushed the roof about 6inches in two different places and punctured a small portion of the side of the house.

Thanks SinkorSwim,

But honestly, when this one hit, my mom who I had stay with me so she wasnt alone, headed right to the shelter/high school for about 6 hours till it past. Definitely scary I must say, I thought it was coming down on us.

Ouch. Looks like pretty hefty damage. Luckily that can all be repaired. Glad to hear you all made it through okay. It's a strange thing to go through something like that.

I should have got us out of there earlier, not smart on my part.

Especially when I saw this one close to the house swaying from side to side about 20ft when it was still light out.
