It was so hot yesterday that Lisa had to put off a trip to the roof until nearly 8 PM, giving her not more than about an hour to try and get something accomplished on this, the last full day that I was here. She obviously can't go up there by herself without a ground spotter; it's much too dangerous.( Collapse )
After doing what she could before twilight ended entirely, Lisa came down from the roof, handed the roller to me, and while I went and washed it out, she put away the tools, detached the safety line from the John Deere mower, and put the mower away. The safety line remains on the roof because she sort of hopes that a friend might be persuaded to come down and spend a couple of days as a ground spotter for her while she makes one more trip up there to do some additional clean up work. And if that doesn't happen, she can get the safety line down by herself without anyone's help, and she tells me she can even put the ground ladder away herself at need, by using the hand cart as a support for dragging it back to the shed in which is it stored.
This is the end of my house work adventures for this trip. In a few minutes, I'll be shutting down the computer, packing up the printer, and leaving to head south again. Current plans have me back up here the first three weeks of October. If we are lucky, we'll have some times with sufficiently good weather to get more work done here.
