survived working on the roof

...I almost forgot: The reason I turned on LJ was to post a "hello, tell me about your life!" plus to announce that I survived working on the roof, sealing leaks that revealed themselves during this week's massive thunderstorms. Of course, I haven't had any time to make fixes lately: This always happens at the most inopportune time; it's as if my house is mocking me. Homeowners, you know what I'm talking about. And of course, my lawn looks more like a jungle than grassy plain.

Anyhow, despite 95°F heat index and scalding-hot shingles, all's sealed up (for now...) and I made it back down safely.

Later!
Chris
