Sweating with the Oldies

We woke up this morning to the sound of rain. It has stopped, but we got quite a bit of rain during the night.

Yesterday, Eric and his crew cut the eaves off the second floor of the house. It turns out they will be easy to replace - they are sistered on to the roof rafters, and should go back in place with little trouble. The sheathing on top of them is largely rotted, so it needed to be replaced anyway.

So now the second floor is sitting at the site, with gapping holes in the roof (covered by plastic, we hope), waiting to be put on the dollies today and then hauled to Albany Village. This evening, starting at 6 PM. Possibly in the rain.

I'm starting to think that maybe we're too old for this level of stress. But the train has left the station, and the second floor move (second of five) is on for today. Keep your fingers crossed.
