Dave, I am sorry to hear of yet another challenge being "thrown?" your way! I am feeling guilty to be living in an area where we complain about too much rain, not enough sun, too much sun, not enough snow (on the mountains) and too much snow (on the roads). As I said in the Irene thread, I am greatly humbled.

That being said, at 8:15 am it is showing signs of being another hot day so that means getting more indoor stuff done.

No, no rain of frogs.. but we do have a tree on the roof...

It didn't go through and looks like it just bent the back gutter. I won't know anything else until I can get on the roof and up in the attic to check.

Oh, this is the weather thread...winds are picking up and rain is coming in waves.

Need dry weather for locusts...I hope the tree didn't do any major damage.

From what I can see from the backyard the roof and shingles look okay. I'll just need to check the sheathing and trusses up in the attic, but not today. I don't want to be stuck up there walking beams if the power goes out.

Knowing me I'd lose my balance and put a foot thru the ceiling and do more damage than the tree did.

Yup, sounds like what would happen to me, too! Or I would scare myself in the dark.
