Sardine Tin

Look, I'm no structural engineer, y'all, but my carport roof is not supposed to look like that. 

Sustained winds of 30-35 mph all day the other day tore the roof loose from one end and rolled it back along the top of the carport like the lid on a tin of sardines. It flapped around all day and made a terrible noise.

Happily, the next day the wind was from the opposite direction and it blew it back down flat again.  Next nice day I'll have to get up on a ladder and screw the roof back down to the rafters properly.  Or, you know, have a retractable roof as a feature on my carport forever.


  1. Oh, goodness :-)

    How is Marion doing?

  2. So very polite of the wind to put it almost back the way it was. :)

  3. This happened on our outbuilding back by the barn. Except, in our case, two of the roof panels ended up in the neighbor's yard. It sure makes a helluva racket.
