Friday, Mark and I spent a good 4 hours trying to “weatherize” the tiny house. We were going to spend the weekend in Wichita with my brother and sister-in-law, and of course there was a chance of storms, so we wanted to cover it the best we could.
On our way back from Wichita, we got the text from Mark’s mom. “The tarps did not hold. The wind was too strong.” Apparently there had been a hurricane in southern Oklahoma! We’re talking 8 inches of rain in an hour with 70 mph wind gusts. We immediately felt sick. His mom and stepdad had gone out and worked it the best they could, and boy did we appreciate it! I think we got pretty lucky. Things inside were a little damp, but no standing puddles.
Positive of this mess: an excuse to wear my work boots! It’s hot, of course I rocked boots with shorts!
