Last Friday, Warren & I spent most of the daylight hours putting Icemelt on the roof ice, & then cracking the ice, & knocking it off the roof. It was cold & a little frightening work, with Warren 20 feet in the air, on the extension ladder, & me on the ground making sure it didn't fall over. We took care of the ice dam, but it took a few mores days before it stoped dripping in the living room. We will continue to sweep new snow off with the roof rake, & 2 of our builder friends claim an heater wire along the roof edge with a thermostat to make it turn on only when needed will take care of future problems, but can't be palced until summer. I put my furniture back in place yesterday, & hung a quilt made by my friend Ruth Simpson, on the screen door, for a splash of color in these white winter days.
The world outside my window looks like a black & white photo.
ARRRGH!!! As I'm typing this, I heard a sudden drip, drip, drip again! It's dripping on my loveseat! Guess I better go ! ARGH, DARN, DANG!!
