What do you treasure most under your roof? A few years ago, we found ourselves standing in our living room and asking ourselves that question at 2 in the morning. A hurricane had come ashore and worked its way as far inland as Central Texas, which is unusual. While Gulf hurricanes usually result in tropical storm winds and rain this far inland, this storm held together and then sat and dumped rain over our area for hours.
By 2am, the water was lapping at the front door and our creek, usually a trickle, if that, during the summertime, had reached flash flood status, jumping its banks and nearly reaching the house. The weather radio, when we could hear it over the storm and the roar of the creek, was reporting 14 inches of rain in our area. We decided it was time to pack up and hike up the hill in front of our house. There was no escape by car since the way out involves crossing the creek.
We started looking around to pack up whatever we could carry. What did we choose?
Irie, Tiki, Linus, Felix, Inca, and Coco, of course.
Between handling two dog leashes and carrying the cat carriers (with the two smaller cats doubled up in one larger carrier), we knew we couldn’t carry anything else. And that was OK. We had what really mattered most to us.
When we got the carriers packed and prepared to walk out in the storm before the creek came into the house, the rain slacked off. We had damage…including a washed out road and huge balls of trees uprooted by the creek…but the storm was over.
That incident really showed us what we treasure under our roof…and now GAF Roofing, the largest roofing manufacturer in North America, is running a contest to find out what YOU treasure most under your roof!
