The roof on the old home place was leaking. Ellis and Allen talked about getting a crew together to go to MT and fix the problem. We hoped to go over Easter vacation. Then that virus shut everything down. When MT opened up and before Allen and Ellis got swamped with work they asked the youth guys if any would be interested in helping. We had a great crew respond.
I tried to get these pictures in the right order and two were so obnoxious as to get in the wrong places. I will need help from my editor. ;)
The guys had a great time and so did the gals. My sis-in-law and I made breakfast and lunch. Supper every evening was down the road at a cousin's house.
The weather was great for two days in a row allowing the guys to get old shingles torn off and a good start on the tin. We heard that rain was in the forecast so every surface that didn't have tin was covered with tarpaper.
We went to bed Friday night to the sound of rain and howling wind. In the morning we found the tarpaper and lathe held up under the onslaught of rain and wind. There were snow flurries at breakfast. This called for some serious site seeing so the roof had time to dry.
We are thankful for all of the Lord's mercies. The timing of the project, the response of those who helped, safety on the roof, safety in travels --
We want to give God all the glory !!
Around noon they were able to get started again and kept working until the job was done at 6:30 - 7:00.
A gigantic thank you for all involved.
