It is Day 3, Wednesday, Jan. 25, and 36 degrees out at 8:15 a.m. The roofers beat me to work, and once again have been pounding, pounding, pounding, in stereo. An enormous pile of shakes is off to one side of the roof. They show their age -- black and tattered on the exposed parts. Just as soon as the shakes are removed, the roofers roll out a protective sheet and tap that down. No work yet on the steeple tower. Stop on by and take a look; it's really fascinating. Thank you, weather person.
