Sky watch Friday 7

Thanks for visiting my view of the sky in the Lake of the Ozarks area of Missouri USA

Grammy
A peek at the Osage river++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
We survived the arctic blast.

We prepared by Adding 1 inch STYROFOAM SHEETS to the north west side of the house. This kept the pipes from freezing and We moved the kettlekorn trailer to deflect the 40+ mile and hour winds they were predicting. This is the end result. The wind tore up most pieces but we are comfortably safe. With lots of debris through out the neighborhood. So I will make this 1 inch STYROFOAM a permanent addition to the house. and add siding over it. As it proved to work well.
Also the concrete blocks Hubby added to the flat roof worked. The roof was not pulled up this time.
So I feel blessed we overcame the elements this time won.



Have a wonderful day and remember to laugh and play.
