There are many overhead expenses with homeownership, some more literal than others. Saturday before last, it was very windy here. When I went outside the following day, I saw a shingle on the ground. Then I saw another shingle. And another. And another… My roof had suddenly developed wind-pattern baldness.
Hear that whimpering? That’s my savings account preparing to take a hit. It's possible that my homeowners insurance will cover a new roof (minus my $1,000 deductible, of course). Or they may deny the claim, and I'll be forking over thousands of dollars. If it’s the latter scenario, home improvement activities may have to cease for a while.
I have no idea what I’ll do with myself if I can’t work on the house! Lots of sewing, I guess. I have a sizable stockpile of fabric on hand. :)
And in tangentially related news, March means weather insanity in Denver. At 4:00 p.m. today, it was 72 degrees. Tomorrow night's forecast says 2-4 inches of snow.
