Collapsed by the snow

  Fun continues, after cracks creeping through the house with the earthquakes now the snow made the roofing of the terras collapse early this morning. We just wanted to take the snow of and crack too late. Just got the message that the guttering has collapsed as well. What a year. I hope the tie will turn soon. We are going to take on our boots and stroll to the shop to see if it is open and to get some fresh air. Freshness will be guaranteed.  The power was off this morning and we heard another 1000 homes were without power.  Hope for all the Christchurch people that they will be safe and warm.   Take care and as the German proverb says
In bad luck hold out in good luck hold in :)

  1. Hi Marja! I do hope things get better for you and your family. We have had Winters like that here but not for awhile. Hope the power comes on soon and that it isn't going to be too much trouble to replace your terras.

  4. Hang in there, for us here in South Carolina bad snow storms, when we have them, always bring down powerlines.

    In general snow here is so rare that even a light dusting will send the state into a panic.

  6. Oh Marja, it's been one thing after another! And to have the power off, that must be awful. I hope you are able to keep warm and that your house will have good remedial work done before too long.

  7. Thanks Marja, for your sweet comment and compliments about my work on my blog... 'Dutch corner' made me curious (ofcourse!) so I came to see you and check where you're from... aaah... another 'Zeeuws meisje' ('Zeeland's girl' - I don't know if you speak Dutch?) It's nice to meet you! And snow... brrrrr... it's a very cold Summer here, but we forunately didn't see snow.

  11. Power outages stink. Hopefully you're back on by now! Glad no one was hurt in the collapse... hopefully it'll be a simple rebuild!

  17. Considering the trials of the last couple of years, the collapse of the patio roof is just one more thing to deal with. I'm thinking that had it happened with nothing else coming before it, you would not have just strolled off to town for a bit of fresh air. It almost seems like a minor thing compared to everything else. Good for you to take it in stride.
