We woke up to the rattle of tremors of storm Agnes passing over and when we looked outside, we discovered a piece, actually quite a long piece of roofing felt lying on the ground just in front of our front door! Where did that come from we thought?
So climbing up onto the roof of our temporary living quarters, we went inspecting our roof! It turned out to be just one single strip of roofing felt that has been ripped off cleanly the roof, leaving behind the marks of the old glue lines and the rest of the felt still clinging on for grim death!!
The roof is still protected against most of the rain water as the ripped off felt strip was covering existing roofing felt and it looks good enough (with only a few signs of actuall holes) so we can wait for the strong winds to die down and we get some clear and sunny days back again before we repair the roof.
