Oops…

We’ve had unusually warm weather the past two days (58 degrees yesterday and 49 degrees today). Much of the snow has melted into mush.  With the piles of snow diminishing I noticed two things this morning…

REWIND TO THE WEEK AFTER CHRISTMAS…We have a tin roof. The roof slopes towards the front and back of our house. Our deck is on the back of our house. Two times the week after Christmas heavy snow/ice slid off the roof onto the deck. That is not unusual. What was unusual was that both times it came down so hard that it knocked almost everything (shelves, pictures, etc.) off the back wall in the living room…

FAST FORWARD TO THIS MORNING with a clear view of the deck…The round table on the deck with the glass insert is broken…well at least the glass is. After further inspection I realized that the DECK is broken!!! I’m not sure who built the deck, it was here when we moved in. It was not made of matching wood and a center brace was never put under the width of the deck. Two years ago John did a lot of work on the deck to make a canopy for it in the summer and I spent a lot of hours staining it. Evidently the deck just couldn’t take the force/weight of the snow this year. I guess I’m not surprised since we had over three feet of snow in the month of December.  So…that’s my big OOPS…
