I shared last week how we had a hard time getting back into the groove around here due to our long road trip to Missouri and back. I was hoping for a smooth and productive week this week, but a storm named Sandy had different plans for our family. I want to be sensitive because other families had it far worse than we did and from what I read in the news, many still don't even have power. However, dealing with rain blowing in your sliding glass basement doors, septic issues (I'll spare you the details), and a leaky roof definitely puts a kink in the homeschooling productivity around here.
Lauren is trying to find her daddy up in the attic. He was trying to locate the place where the water was coming in.
Tyler acted as his dad's ladder buddy. It was raining steadily outside, but the wind hadn't picked up much yet so Heath went up to see if he could do anything to keep the water from coming in. We had never had a leaky roof until this storm (which is a common story I am hearing from many in our area). We were worried about water coming in our basement because we have spent a lot of hours and money down there working to repair things and fix water issues we had. Thankfully, it stayed dry, except for the sliding glass door area, but Heath was able to keep up with it with the shop vac and a fan.
We live on a heavily wooded lot and I love all the shade in the summertime, but it can get a little scary during hurricane season around here.
Do you live in an area that was affected by this storm? If so, how are you doing? Let's keep praying for everyone who is struggling and hurting as a result of this storm. Some have lost homes and property due to fires, flooding, and many are still without power.
