The trials and tribulations of our journey to make a baby.

I would die for that.

screw you hanna!!

So, Here we are thinking we are more than a mile inland and Hanna won't even bother us. We go to a party and see the "winds".. not so bad... but, we were inland and thinking... what storm? Well, we come home (about 1-2 miles from the nearest water) and the ceiling in the bathroom has a major, water filled bulge in it... Great a roof leak.. Great. I guess.. the shore areas were harder hit???

I don't even know how this is handled... It is midnight, almost, and my Dad said he would come over tomorrow.. Ugh.. I don't even know what we will do. This is bad..

Pray that it doesn't mean a whole roof replacement.. I don't even know where that would come from, finacially speaking.

Update:

Well it looks like we had a clogged gutter that backed up the water onto the house. So, thank god we don't need a new roof. We just have to cut out the drywall in the bathroom and replace that small section.

Hoping that the roof isn't so bad and that it doesn't require a full replacement. Maybe it'll just need a patch job.

Yup! We know we need a new roof, but more than that we need new gutters. We're in desperate need for gutter guards. Unfortunately during the storm the gutters overflowed so badly and we discovered a leak between the base of the house and the ground :-(. Yup, minor flooding in our utility room (sigh). We've been frantically saving and are 1500 away from the roof/gutter estimate.

Good luck! A new roof is expensive. Hopefully you won't need to replace all of it, you can patch, or you only have 1 layer of shingles and they can just add a second layer which is significantly less expensive.
