Not a personal melt down ... just a winter melt down. JUST ... how about PRAISE THE LORD type of melt down! Except if you live in a low lying area perhaps. With about eight feet of snow compacted down to 2-1/2 to 3 feet of snow on my roof and drifts and piles five to eight feet high, the weather has warmed up to the mid forties. When night time lows are higher than day time highs, things can get pretty screwy. This week we went ahead and had a crew of men come out and shovel the snow off the roof. With rain comes melting, but with so much snow on the roof, if it rains and then freezes up, that can be disastrous to a roof. We have a nice pitch to our roof, but many (hundreds) of roofs on businesses have collapsed the past two weeks. This must be our area's version of Al Gore's global warming ;) Our local schools opened on Monday, only to close yesterday and today. Here's hoping that 'normalcy' returns soon. The boys (Nathan and Jacob) are bouncing off the walls. Send me a straight jacket (Sara).
