Blown Away!

It doesn't happen every day that your neighbor stops you while walking the dog and says,
"Hey Bernhard, I think the winds last night threw something from your chimney into my backyard. Let me get it." 
... and he comes back with a large metal thing.

It turns out that the winds overnight did blow away our new chimney cap. I don't know if it was not properly screwed down or what happened exactly. However, it turns out that the bolts mounted to the mesh are 1/4" regular thread. I grabbed some wing nuts and 5 minutes later the cap was back to where it belonged.
