Big blow; big mess

Oh dear! Look what happened on Friday night. I was sitting by the window having a pleasant conversation when ... BANG, CRASH, BANG! My first thought was ‘Thunder!’

df jumps up and looks out of the window.

“The roof on the deck has just blown off,” he declares.

“What!” say I .... “No!”

Unfortunately, he was right!

Here’s what it looked like the next morning.

Oh well, it's nothing that a step ladder and a few nails won't put right ... oh yes ... and a fair bit of sweat!

Oh man. At least it wasn't the roof of the house. That would have really sucked.

Whoah! That must have been some wind!

I had a friend once who told me that on a windy night, the pressure built up and up underneath her glass patio table and it simply shattered into a gajillion pieces. At least you're not cleaning that up!
