The roof is complete

Report and photo by Dennis Casebier

The wind came back before dawn this morning. The temperature on front porch at 6:15 AM was a hair below 40 degrees. It must have gotten a little colder during the night because we had a thin sheet of ice on the bird water.

The roofers came back a little before 10:00 AM and they a re out there in the cold wind now on the tall ladders trying to get roofing on the top of the depot. That roof is steeper than the roof on the Freight House.

And now, here in the early afternoon, the roofing is on the second story of the Depot. The wind is still blowing and it's cool out even though it's bright and sunny. The roofers are still working on the details, but basically, the roof is on and completed.
