Our House Post Post Oak

We still maintain that we got off incredibly lucky compared to what could have happened when our tree came down. But there was more damage than we realized hiding under the foliage. And we have a lot of wood to split.

Closeup of the hole in our laundry room roof:

That corner suffered more damage than we had realized both on the 1st floor addition...
...and on the second floor. Not sure how this will play out, since the siding shingles are made of asbestos embedded in concrete -- I don't think they can be replaced, since they aren't made anymore.

Two of our solar panels are visibly broken, and a third is way down in production.

But perhaps the biggest surprise was finding our attic fan on the ground, which means we had a second decent-sized hole in our roof that we didn't even know about until Monday night.
