That is, ice dam. We don't have leaky pipe damage. We have ice damming. In case you haven't heard of this, the Wall Street Journal helpfully explains it here. Apparently, lots of folks in our neighborhood have ice damming this year. Lucky us.

-No photos of this. Imagine icicles hanging from the eaves of our house and you've just about got it. Otherwise, the photos would look just like this text--black and white. It's cloudy out today.

I've had a nice appointment with the insurance adjuster to discuss the damage in our bedroom and elsewhere...We didn't like the color of the guest bathroom anyhow, right?! I've put in a call to see if someone wants to wander over and remove this snow from our roof in the meanwhile. We'll likely be having a contractor come in and do estimates.

It also looks like this summer might be the time to have our roof redone...Cause, you know, after the babies are born, I won't be getting a lot of rest anyhow, right? What's a little hammering in the meanwhile?

Here are a few reviving views of Florida from our trip to keep sunshine in mind. Actually, we've had a remarkable thaw over the last day or two. It's gone from -40 to just about freezing! No wonder why it is leaking water indoors... that's 70 degrees Fahrenheit! 40 degrees Celsius!

I've taken advantage of the weather to go out to visit a friend, to take a walk in the neighborhood to have dinner out with another friend and even to stop for a gelato on the way home. The sad part is that it turns out that even in wonderful warm weather... (32F, 0C is WARM!), I still get out of breath. That is just because at this point, I've got two fetuses pushing on my breathing parts. Oh well. I did enjoy the outing!

Ice see you're handling it well, though. Good luck!
