Our roof after Hurricane Kyrill



This is how our roof looked after Hurricane Kyrill (see Wikipedia entry here if you weren't near Northern Europe last week). Heike heard "something falling off the roof" at about 2am, but nothing was visible on street level the next day. It wasn't till Sunday afternoon that I climbed up on the roof (very scary compared to rock climbing with ropes) and took these pictures.
We're hoping to get this fixed before snow settles on there...

"rock-climbing with robes"?

I'd be more interested in some photos of that.

BTW, the pictures embedded in your posting don't show for me in Firefox. Don't know whether it's a Picassa, Blogger, or plain slow Interweb issue...

Hope there's no structural damage, and that you get it repaired soon. Must have been noisy!

ok, ok, the ropes misspelling is corrected, and the pictures should be showing ok (was an embedded URL that needed authentication)

That looks horrible! Without the strong foundation of structural frame and sheathing, roofs can be the easiest to lose in a hurricane blow. I hope you were able to recover quickly and get a new one.
