Wicked winds

Shingles downThese are part of the new roof that was installed back in October. You may have noticed that they're not on the roof. Yesterday was quite blowy: our weather machine registered a high wind speed of 25 metres per second, which is 56 miles, or 90 kilometres, an hour, if my sums are right. So not hugely high (especially as the roof was supposed to be able to survive 80mph), but high enough to do some damage. Dean the roofer is coming back tomorrow.

Doorless barnWe also finally lost the side door of the small barn, which had been looking a bit sorry for itself ever since we arrived. I'm actually glad about that casualty, because it was a pain to open and close in its previous, hanging-on-by-a-hinge, state.
