Something good


Steve and I had been planning and saving for a new roof. A roof is so expensive. We tried to get out of paying for it – a couple years ago, Steve called an insurance adjustor out, hoping that sometime in the past fifteen years there had been significant enough hail damage that our insurance would cover the cost. No dice.

A few weeks ago, we finally bit the bullet and Steve scheduled some roofing companies out for estimates. That same week, we had a hailstorm. A bad enough hailstorm that this time, the insurance adjustor did find significant enough damage that our insurance would cover the cost. So today, the roofing company re-roofed us. And we paid nothing.

Do you know that song from The Sound of Music called Something Good? Sure, the lyrics are about falling in love, but if you don’t know the context, I think these lyrics apply about a new roof:

Somewhere in my youth or childhood
I must have done something good
