NOTHING is charming about this mess but it will be better soon. Our painter Dean is cocooning us with paper/plastic over all the windows. It will be better soon. We really missed being able to roll out the awning as it was all wrapped in plastic as well!
We had to give up on shutter repairs, bite the bullet and buy new. Hail and heat were hard on the old ones, now brittle and broken. However, hail did NOT destroy my hostas this year - a new record! Yeahhhhh!
