Windy Windy Wind!!

We had one heck of a wind storm over the past few days (windy by Calgary standards, not necessarily hurricane or tornado winds!!).  Winds topped out at 130 km/h but they mostly kept at the 80 km/h range off and on for two days.

The girls Grandparents dropped them off after a fun weekend together (thanks again Mom!! You rock!) and warned us of flying shingles everywhere so I decided to take a quick look and saw this:

You can't really tell but on the far right hand side we have a few rows of shingles are are coming up.  :(  I'm so bummed but Mr. Quiltapotamus said he can fix it so I'm holding him to it!!  Thankfully we didn't get nearly as much damage as was being reported on the news.

When I went out to take pictures this afternoon I noticed our poor neighbours house:

Yeah, thats not snow on the second house from the right.  Over half of their shingles on their roof came off and thats plywood you can see.

On a side note the basement is ALMOST done!!  We just need to get the trim in and do a little touch up painting here and there but then its done done done!  Then I can bring all my sewing stuff down and I can get back to work on all my projects that I have on the go!

Can't wait!  Its going to be so great to get everything back down there.


  1. Can't wait to see your sewing space all finished. Looks like you have a lot of room in the basement. Glad your roof didn't blow away!

  2. That MUST have been a good wind storm. Wow!

  3. That must have been some storm ..... That room looks awesome ... what a great space.

  4. Sorry to hear about your roof and the bad winds. You are lucky to have a Mr. who is able/and will fix things like that. =)

    And the side note...well...that is just AWESOME!! Could be even MORE than awesome!
