A moving screen (and I don't mean in the NCAA playoffs)

Something is missing from this picture.

Can you tell what it is?

Ta Da!

It is our screen door!

 These are the lonely, empty hinges where our screen door isn't anymore.

It gets pretty windy around here sometimes and this past weekend the wind grabbed the screen door as one of our kidlets was headed outside to play.  Two of the four hinges were already broken thanks to previous encounters (and several screen chains had already been installed and broken over the years) and Saturday a rather blustery day turned up and opted to yank our door from its intended home...which is our home. 

Our four and six year old tumbled into the house screaming like banshees and thinking we were going to eat them alive (or that's what you would have thought it you had heard their caterwauling).  We eventually calmed them down and told them that loss of a screen door is not a life threatening situation.  They were relieved.

But now we have to reevaluate our screen situation.  Josh didn't exactly love installing the first one so this should be interesting.  I'll keep you posted.
