This has been a very wet, active year for Iowa. I’ve posted about some of the storms we’ve had and seen this year. I can’t believe how much devastation and destruction just keeps occurring. Around 5 tonight we had another wave roll through. We went to the basement as there was ANOTHER tornado warning. When we came upstairs we were surprised by how many limbs were down in our yard. We are also house sitting for a neighbor and had to take care of her house as well. These were just a few of the limbs in our front yard.
In the middle of this I get a phone call from the theatre cancelling rehearsal as there are MANY new waterfalls in our ceiling. This is just heartbreaking as we have spent so much time trying to remodel and make this a nice place. We knew that we were in need of a new roof, but the wind just peeled it off tonight. I’m really hoping that we can still open the show next weekend. My sweet husband, another board member, and Brian our building guy climbed up on top of the roof and attached a giant tarp as it was raining again. We’ve raised $3500, but the new roof will cost $20,000. If anyone wants to make a nice donation to a non-profit childrens’ theatre that is tax-deductible, let me know… 😦
