a sad, sad day

This is our parking lot at work, That black ball of stuff is our roof.
Remember how beautiful this window was 1 month ago today when I posted?
And this one?
We have been reduced to nothing but sopping wet goods. The 100 plus mile winds we had Monday night ripped off our roof,blew the windows in and spilled so much water into the shop. There was nothing anyone could do... except cry.

Lisa- I am so so sorry, I wish I could be close enough to help you
clean and salvage. One of our stores here got hit by a tornado a few years back, we had corporate to assist. So I know it is stressful and draining for you and your Mom being the shop owners. I hope that you could salvage some merchandise. I will be thinking of you. If you need an ear to bend or poor out some frustration, email me!! Take care.

Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry!!!! Will insurance cover any of the loss? I hope that you are able to get the shop back up and running soon--I'm so sad for you!
