It's frustrating sitting here wondering if it is badly damaged and open to vandals.
I know all of us on here wish you luck and will be waiting for an update.

I just got an email from a neighbor up there and he said there is a large Oak on the garage. No idea how much damage but I will be leaving at first light to go deal with that. Guess the Vette will wait a day.
Crap!!

I hate that Mitch. Wish I was closer and could at least help you man a chain saw. Good luck!

John long I spent more time in the basement than usual but a lot of it went to cleaning it up. It had kind of gotten to be a pig pen down there.

I did get the flange finished fo the rear wall of the top well. Also stripped the paint from both sides of most of it. Just have to punch the holes for the plug welds and put it in.

I came upstairs just in time to catch this sunset on the front porch with my lovely wife, Barbara.

A few years ago, I was doing demo on an old hospital building that was being remodeled into office space.

Late one afternoon, I was cleaning up some of the mess we had made during the day while the foreman was in another room, cutting copper pipes out of the ceiling with a sawzall.

I was sweeping, and I thought I heard water running, but didn't think too much about it. Pretty soon, one of the guys come out of the room and ran down the hall. Went to see what was going on, and Dave had cut one of the main water pipes on the wrong side of the valve

They had to shut the whole building off, which made the people in the clinic next door very unhappy; and there was over a million dollars in water damage down stairs...

I am SO glad it was the foreman that did that and not me!!!

BuzzLOL . Yeah, it gets 15 or 20 below zero here in winter so opening up a 9' door lets a lot less heat out than a 16 or 18 footer...

MARTINSR My problem is that I have a one car driveway that I have to squeeze back past a fence and the house where it's only ten feet away into the back yard to the garage that is 20 feet past the house. The one door now is straight back so I can roll back there and in the garage pretty easily. The door to the left would be behind the house and I will need to take a pretty sharp turn as I come out to get around the corner. It's pretty easy with the convertible when the top is down. But other than that, it's kinda challenging.
