Nearing Complete Coverage

The weather was remarkably cooperative on Monday, so we got a lot more accomplished on the roof than I expected.

Besides needing to let all of the Goo dry, and besides needing to let her very sore muscles recover from all that time dangling from the safety harness, Lisa took the day off from construction work because it is her father's birthday, and she made dinner for the three of us, including chocolate brownies. I had a small piece. Boy, were they good, but I had to go take a 3 km hike after dinner to make up for it.

Although there continues to be work to be done — there always is — we're feeling very good about what we've done now. Even if we had to stop immediately, we have some hope that we've made a significant move in keeping that section of roof from leaking this winter. Of course we won't really know until it starts raining, but we're holding out hope.
