Well, today might be the day I am called Home. I am at camp and a section of roof just blew off one of our buildings. The winds are probably 60MPH plus. Not too bad, but when they come up the valley or down from the mountain they seem to pick up speed. My brilliant co-worker asked me "What are we going to do about the roof?" I said, "Today? Nothing." He said, "We have to do something" so I said, "Well, go get the ladder, a tarp, and duct tape and cover it." He is expendable. I am glad I had just repaired the chapel roof. Unbeknownest to me the shingles we were finding around the Lodge, were actually from the Chapel. I climbed up onto the Lodge roof and all looked ok. I looked over to the Chapel roof and the side I could see was okay. Got the extension ladder, put it into the bed of my truck (I needed an additional 2 feet of height) and checked out that roof. Yep, plenty of repair to do there.
Thankfully it is the blind side of the roof, you can't see it from the ground. So my repairs were not asthetically pleasing, but so far they are holding.
Now sometimes people say, "What does this have to do with diabetes?" I say, "Everything" I am much more than a person with diabetes and so are you! Oh, and if you have BS that akes sudden drops, make sure you eat before doing stuff like ladder and roof work.
