quick Alaska trip to reports that the roof had leaked. It leaked once before in a big storm when the house was just a couple years old. Once again, heavy rains accompanied by major winds was blamed, blowing rain under the vent cap and into the roof vent.
I planned to deal with it after our Green River trip. Unfortunately, we came home to reports that the late September storm resulted in more leaks in the same place.
The buckets weigh 70 pounds each. Turns out, "easy" wasn't part of the vocabulary. Many trips up and down the ladder...
Meanwhile, friends I haven't met yet are having a wonderful time in Utah. If it wasn't for the roof, I'd be prone to hook up and run north. Instead I just read Suzanne's, Jim & Gayle's, and Mark's blogs about all the beauty that we're missing.
