Good morning. Guess what? Yup, it's snowing. The snow started sometime late last evening, and I guess it will stop sometime today. I'm glad to say that it held off until well after my roof repair was finished. I am very thankful for that.
Yesterday morning I went outside at 6:50 to move my car, and the dumpster was already being backed into my driveway. All of the working crew were in their car by the sidewalk just waiting for seven o'clock to begin work. Wowsie!
Have you ever seen a pink dumpster? This was my first.
The work crew got busy right away, and kept at it until the roof was finished at 2:45 p.m. At one point, I heard a weird noise and went out on the porch to see what it was. The guys were using a gadget that was completely new to me. The item was attached to one of the ladders. You put a heavy bundle of roof shingles on it and it lifted the bundle up to the roof. Awesome!
I took a tiny video of this because it was so fascinating. and I'm going to see if I can upload it here.
Once you click the start arrow, don't blink. It's a very tiny video. I was just so fascinated with it thinking of all the back and leg pain that it eliminated from lifting and carrying these heavy bundles.
Well, the worst of all the storm damage has now been repaired, and now I just have to wait for the adjuster to come out to check out the attic and my fence. Hopefully, after that my claim can be processed and I can get paid. My emergency savings is looking really sad now. (But I'm ever so thankful that it was there when I needed it!)
I want to thank everyone for their well wishes and good thoughts during all of this. Knowing you have friends and family who care makes it so much easier to get through the difficult times. I appreciate each and every one of you, and I'm so blessed to have you in my life.
Today I need to get busy around here. I still have things to put away, and then I need to sit down and finish putting my tax stuff together. I did not take any of it with me on vacation. I already had enough on my mind. So that's what I'll be doing today and probably tomorrow. DIL Janet said that she will total up all my columns when I'm done. After that I can call my accountant for an appointment to take all of this to him.
Before I get started on today's chores, I'm going to have a second cup of coffee and read a few blogs. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have an awesome day.
Hugs, Edna B.
