We have a roof.
We have new flooring on the way.
We don't have a ceiling in the master bedroom yet,
though the contractor should be taking care of that shortly.

There are still some unsightly dead trees around. 
Makes me want to buy a chainsaw and learn how to use it.
Insurance doesn't always provide money to remove destroyed trees.
(These aren't our trees, just dead ones that make it look painful still)
At night the air is heavy with wood smoke.

There used to be a house here.

There used to be 3 houses, a shed and a carport between the house on the left
 and the pile of rubbish in the foreground.

Two of the three have new foundations.

The new view looking out to the river Rivah.

Dueling dozers.
The area on the far shore is where the Hurd's house used to be.

This building is a garage. 
Yeah, I thought it was a house at first too.
And that upside down flag is a sign of distress if my memory of maritime flag symbols serves me. 
And yes, I'd say it's still a bit distressing in Jackson Acres.


  1. So sad and yet signs of slow restoration ..

  2. I'm so sorry Mother Nature got so mean in your neighborhood. Glad your place is coming along.
