The roof on the garage lasted another ten years but it too, at last, succumbed to the Second Law of Thermodynamics - all things tend toward disorder. Due to the new house there was no money for repairing that roof, so in dismay I have watched it fall into ugliness and decay. There was actually a round hole directly above the basement where the pressure tank of the well system resides, the tornado "shelter" - as if I would ever take shelter there! The entire building has fallen into disrepair, and any item "stored" in it is actually just waiting to be hauled to the landfill.
Until this week!!!!
I called for bids two weeks ago - received them in the mail on Monday, accepted one that night. There was no discussion of when it would happen but Wednesday I came home to a yard full of equipment and ALL the shingles off. I came home from work tonight, Friday, and the new roof was complete. I do not mind spending the money for such immediate and professional work. What a relief to have this major problem resolved at last!
It surely is the nicest roof of any portal to hell any time, any where. I hope the whangdoodles appreciate it as much as I do.
|Ugliness and an eyesore - and the winter portal to hell when I have to go in the basement to turn on the heater.|
|Still the portal to hell, but much nicer looking.|
The reference to hell makes more sense if you recall the ordeal of descending into hell documented here: Portal To Hell
