To Top Things Off

A New Roof!!!!!! My old one is approximately nineteen years old(with shingles that have a twenty year warranty) If my house was of the normal vanilla variety, things would probably be ok. But, my house appears to be a cape cod from the front...ultra modern from the back(below the cliff) There are eleven skylights and an added on two story garage. The house is post and beam construction, but the addition is standard stick construction. There are just too many different rooflines and breaks in the roof for it to not leak. The recent storms have caused me to place garbage cans and pots and tuppeware bowls throughout the house.

The guys are up there, as I write, and it sounds as if they are engaging in warefare. My dog is going crazy. I cannot calm her. I tried taking her outside to watch, since she knows the roofer, but only calmed her for a bit. So I have a noisy house and even noisier pooch. I suppose that's the price of progress!
