Fernley Roof Update

Lisa left me a message this afternoon to report the good news that the contractor's workers showed up with a cherry-picker lift today ("worth its weight in gold," one of the workers told Lisa) and repaired the wind damage to the fascia. Because they were able to re-use some of the old material, they'll knock $75 off the final price. We got away rather lightly, I think; the total job will end up costing less than $900 and there was no other damage to the wood underneath the fascia. Lisa faunched slightly over the cherry-picker lift, saying how much easier the roof work in Mehama would have been with that equipment.

Lisa also reported that it's snowing today in Fernley. That's fine as long as it doesn't snow on April 21 when I'm driving the moving van full of furniture up there.
