    Not the best way to start my weekend morning. Around 4:00 A.M. in the morning, a Storm flew my Garage Roof. Then landed in my Neighbor's Gutter then broke into chunks. About 7 people & I help took the debris into the trash.

    It was Quite Scary. They used a Paper Substance to cover the Garage top, then use Tar to seal it. Now it's in pieces. Except for one piece that's one. Phew.

    Wierdest Morning Ever.

    Ha!


    Also, why'd the OP toss everything into the trash? You'd think with a little Duct Tape & WD-40, him and a few other men would have things wrapped up by morning.

    This reminds me of the time I was at an art teacher's house, when in the middle of a lesson his single car garage collapsed. Beautiful sunny day, fwomp, garage on its side.

    question, is the garage attached to the house or is it a separate building?

    Yes. You are Correct.

    Wow, now seeing those pics makes me think they used canvas on your roof... sure can see why it would blow away in a strong wind... glad nothing else or other folks were hurt.
