Uh-oh . . . Where’s yesterday’s post?

Wednesday, February 20th, 2008

Sorry I didn’t get a post up yesterday. However, I DO have an excuse.

Our receiver/transmitter for our Clearw’re connection is usually mounted on a pole atop our roof, but . . . our house is busy being reroofed, thus, I lost internet connection JUST as I was ready to post.

The old shingles lasted five years beyond their guaranteed life, but they wouldn’t have held up much longer. In our wet climate the moss is hard to keep off the shingles, and it just eats them up.

Two crews of guys showed up to do the work, with (I think it was) four large trucks. Almost twenty years ago Rick did the entire roof all by himself, in his “spare” time. However, I’m sure thankful he’s not the one laboring up there this time; that is grueling work.

Well, I came in early to work so I could get this little bit of a post done. If the internet connection is restored today, I’ll try to put up some pictures of the reroofing operation. Rick got some good shots of the operation.

Hope you all have a good day.

(Edited at about 6pm: Here are some photos from the re roofing.)

We had Mt. Baker Roofing come to do the work. They came with plenty of trucks and two roofing crews, even bringing their own outhouse as well.

I want to post a few more photos, but the Internet connection is INCREDIBLY slow just now . . . so, that’s it for now. 😛
