In last week’s newsletter, I mentioned that the work on the new roof here at the Magic City Bachelor Bungalow, home of the library and, yours truly, librarian, was beginning.
Thursday morning, last week, without any specific prior warning, a truck rolled up and the new shingles arrived, finally revealing that things had begun in earnest! Those were all conveyed up to where they’d be needed. I got a call on Friday, that the crew was taking the day off and asked if they could re-schedule for Saturday. Welp, since I didn’t ever even know they were scheduled to work on Friday, that didn’t bother me if they didn’t show up; though I kind of wondered if they would since the shingles had arrived.
The actual crew to do the work showed up on Saturday morning. I was able to get a couple pictures, but not a lot. They parked the trash trailer at my front door, so I didn’t really go in or out whilst they were dropping old shingles down. And, moreover, they set up netting around the house.
So all in all, I didn’t get out to watch as much as I might have hoped. But here’s a couple of the pictures I was able to take, and, for fun, one short shaky video of the old shingles being trashed.
