Happy about our back fence

Until about an hour before the storm struck, Danica and I were working on the red fence, giving it some new boards and fresh paint.

When Danica said that a big branch had hit the back fence, my heart fell. Days of hard work, crushed? But no. It was the fence on the other side … the one I recently braced with new posts. It stood up to the blow! Only some lattice on top needs replacing.

The force of that branch was enough to break two 2×6 rafters on the carport, so I am pretty proud of my fence post reinforcements. Look at the clobbering a neighbour’s Volvo got from a similar branch.

Time to finish painting the red fence, then work on those broken rafters. I’ll get help to reattach our downspout. Roof climbing days are behind me.

  1. WOW!!! When did this happen? Sounds like you got away lucky. The branch on top of Volvo looks like a saw cut, not a snap/break. Ummmmm

  2. Yes, Paul, the storm was just a clever cover for a chainsaw maniac. We aren’t saying any more until there has been an arrest.
