Roof

The sky is blue and the clouds are few, what now are we going to do. I guess we have to pay the bill. (Priceless)

Finally that slow moving rain storm left the midwest. It must have been camped out for a week or so. It looked like it went from Michigans Upper Peninsula to the Mid-Ohio Valley, Minnesota to Buffalo, NY. It was moving east at a snails pace. It wasn’t a lot of rain, just persistent and unpredictible. Just ask the Detroit Tigers and the New York Yankees. Even they got rained out on the last day of September.  Well moving on.

The crew came back and finished our roof.  Actually one of the guys from the crew came back on Sunday evening around 6:30 pm and worked until dark. He told me he wasn’t scheduled to come, but thought he would try to finish the job if he could since he was in the neighborhood. We were so impressed with his dedication, we gave him a small token for his troubles to buy lunch with or something. On Monday morning the 3rd, he finished up everything and did the final clean up. Oh Happy Day.

Our house is dry and I love that. We have to pay the remainder of the bill. Do I love that? Well not so much. 🙂

I’m glad we went this route. If I had done it myself, I would still be doing the tear-off part. These guys have so much skill that goes along with their experience. Watching them stand backwards on the edge of the roof, laying down the first row or two of shingles reminded me I was way out of their league. I’ll stay in my lane.

Now on to the next project.

The other day I wrote about the ordeal of getting the roof done on our home. That same day they had to stop working at about 4:00pm because the rain was coming down so steady. I went out to check on them from time to time and they told me they were only about and our from finishing the entire job. The foreman told me they would be back the next morning at 8:00am. I thought I would call off from work and stick around in case they are able to show up. It was dry when I woke up at about 5:30am but by 8:00am it’s just raining. And raining, and raining, and raining. It rained all day. Not a heavy rain, but that incessant sprinkle misting type of rain. And of course it stopped in the afternoon and the sun came out at about 3:00pm. I joked with my wife and said I should go to work for an hour just so the day doesn’t feel wasted.

Well the day wasn’t wasted. The weather just didn’t cooperate. As I’m writing this it’s Saturday morning and I’m wondering if they might show up today. Not sure if they work on weekends or will they show up Monday Morning. Houston we have a problem. This isn’t working like I hoped. Unfortunately I’m having to take off more time from work than I planned. I do have to remember that it is a whole lot less days than if I was doing it myself. We just want it done and I know it will be soon.

Whatever you do send all your good weather energy this way, so it will happen. 🙂
