All hail home maintenance (emphasis on "hail")
Mr. Wonk and I got through Snowmageddon without any damage to the parts of our condo that we're responsible for, but Mother Nature intended us for a later drubbing. I came home from work Friday to that discover that hail -- hail, for Pete's sake -- had flattened flowers and left holes in window screens across the neighborhood.
I'm not kidding. Here, have a look at one of ours:
It never occurred to me that hail could do that sort of damage. But then, it was pretty sizable hail:
Immediate home maintenance was required. I had thoughts of pulling out the screen, frame and all, and taking it somewhere for repair. Mr. Wonk, who is handier, pointed out that he had all the necessary tools to repair it himself: new screening and a spline roller. ("Spline" is the black rubber strip that keeps the screening in the frame.)
Doityourself.com calls screen repair "among the simplest of jobs," but hey -- I was impressed. I didn't even realize we had a spline roller.
Did anyone else take any damage from the hail?
What's the worst that weather has ever done to your home?
