Storm Damage 2010

East Tennessee January 29, 2010
Gorgeous -- Big fat wet flakes of snow, 3-4 inches before morning.... but it turned to freezing rain before daybreak and ice is heavier still and the kennel covers were not built to support that kind of load.

Before the collapse (in '07 & '08)

A week later the last of the snow melted off and we could assess damage...
and it's disheartening.

4'x8' resting platform 
(Need to convert to 4x4 doghouse)

It's already obvious everything can't be fixed -- the costs are too prohibitive - but we have to repair gates, fences & doghouses and we have to have shade by summer.

More Snow Valentine's Day 2010

Thursday & Saturday we got the damaged shade cloth and damaged roof supports down -- thank goodness, because we got 2 more inches on Valentines Day, and we had light snow most of the day after that.  The dogs had fun romping around and I took the pups over the agility A-frame, because it has TRACTION with iced-over snow <LOL>
