Resurrected. Sort of.

After the storm (and a bit of clearing
so I could get to the coop).

Patched together under Bleu's
What a mess.  I was going to take a picture of the collapse right after I discovered it, but it was pouring.  Then I had to partically clear it so I could reach the Nuggets.  The bottom pic was taken this morning - after a feverish couple hours spent after work last night, in between more rain and darkness.  Pardon the fact that there is not a level or square inch in the thing.  I was lucky to cobble it together.  It's amazing what you can do with a pair of quick-release clamps and a 18W Makita drill/screwdriver...  If you click on the bottom pic, you will see the Fiberglas pole used to prop up the tarp has been bent to a 45 degree angle.  The Nuggets were very happy to lumber out into the fresh air.  This will suffice for a couple of days - but there is more rain forecast and they are outgrowing their quarters.  Next stop will be the hoop house - once I get the electronet around it.  Then it's off to Freezer Camp.

Glad everyone is ok!

Granted it's nice to get the rain but not all kinds of it with winds and havoc.
Glad to hear your critters are okay.

I think you did a great job of putting things back together!

Wish you could send some of that rain my way.

Freezer camp? LOL! Oh, I laughed hard on that one. Hubby and I always note when people's animals "go on holiday". Love your term!
