Bye-Bye Boat House

(Thursday, 17 July 2008) by Michele Cozzens

boathouse.jpgOur lakefront boat house, your basic barn-shaped shed, is now a part of the scrap heap. It's the only building that didn't survive last week's storm--the victim of not one but two trees that came to rest smack dab in the center of it. The good news is that Mike recycled some of the materials and used them to temporarily fix the floor of our waved-out Recreation House. Over the winter, the joists of the floor collapsed and the result was a major dip in the floor under the ping pong table. It sure added another dimension to the weekly ping pong tournaments going on in there!

We're still cleaning up from the storm; however, the floor of the rec house won't be replaired until after the busy summer season. We've learned to maintain this place one project at a time.

Storms have been all around us this week and each time the sky darkens and thunder rumbles, I can't help but hold my breath. I do believe we've seen the worst of it already. I HAVE to believe this, of course.
