Hydro One has every available crew helping to restore power to customers as we enter our fourth day of restoration work. Since the start of the wind storm, Hydro One in partnership with neighbouring utilities has restored power to over 560,000 customers.
All we had was shingle damage from the windstorm: my initial repair job: A massive windstorm. Back on the roof, I realised I needed to caulk some of the shingles. Some were broken in half, and, while I put the puzzle back together, they weren't sticking together anymore. I sent hubby off where he bought some caulking. My friend, who works in Home Hardware, told him that they ran out of caulk on the weekend, and had to order more in.
It's a nice view from the roof. I had to wait until I could get hubby's attention, as I'd remembered the caulking gun, the caulk, gloves, but forgot a nail to pierce and open the tube.
Then the vultures came around. It was a bit creepy. I imagine they could smell the remains of the grouse 100m away! All that is left of it is a few tail feathers, and its ruff, which is in the garage to show my grandkids.
I killed some time until I heard him in the garage and yelled. He had strict orders not to watch me go up and down the ladder. He makes me nervous. That's the worst part for me. He threw me up a nail.

They ran out of caulking at the store in Perth on the weekend. I see why. The odd shingles are missing here and there. We have rain today. That will be a fine test.
