Better Late Than Never?

So, a little while back (September 14, 2009), a little wind blew through our neck of the woods (remnants of hurricane Ike) and a tree branch fell on our roof.
Today, almost a year later, I finally got the monster off of there. By monster I mean that what was still on our roof was 22 foot long and about 2 foot across. This was after taking off as much as I felt comfortable doing by myself which included another section that was about 6.5 foot long by 1.5 foot across. That limb fell DOWN on TOP of our two-story home! Yeah, as one of the less-than-professional "Tree Care Specialists" stated when giving us a quote, "That's one big-ash tree!"
So, better late than never. Now, to get the roof repaired...
