Cassi Creek: The winter storm brushed us rather than dumping inches of snow onto us. We received only a thin coat of ice and a thin layer of granular snow atop the ice.
I scraped off the top layer this morning, and then broadcast de-icer pellets over the steps and the back deck. The sun is playing tag with clouds so the decks fall under shadows as the clouds move overhead. The temperature is not going to reach above freezing today. We’ll see how much melting takes place.
The gutter/roofing company owner we hired to complete and repair the last company’s sloppy and larcenous work called to say that he was going to delay our work until warmer and safer conditions moved into the region. I certainly understand that. Working on a metal roof with icy patches is not my idea of something I would care to do. It is a non-emergency repair. I’m pleased he called. Not a common practice with too many of the local workers.
Little else of any import today.
