Those Canadian geese get around - one of my older pics from the Chetola Resort in Blowing Rock, NC - have a wonderful pic of a bunch of goslings - need to find that one again! Dave

Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris Caught On Fire Suffering Extensive Damage!
"On 15 April 2019, the cathedral caught fire and suffered significant damage, including the collapse of the entire roof and the main spire and substantial damage to the rose windows. (Source)"
Most of the stone vaulting has also collapsed.
The ancient amazing supporting wooden roof completely lost - more below w/ a few pics before the fire (Source) - the roof was constructed - most of the destroyed frame was constructed from timbers in the early 13th century - these were huge and came from 300-400 year old trees, which started their lives back in the 800s & 900s CE! I suspect that a combination of steel and engineered lumber will be used to reconstruct the roof support - the lead plates (or something similar in appearance) can be put on the top to re-create the look on the outside - but just my initial thoughts.
