Once, we had 2 inches of sleet, and 6 inches of snow, in one morning, the next day (afternoon) it was gone, except in the shade. (Wow, did we have some fun, that day!)
We've been needing a new roof for a couple years but I keep putting it off, I'm terrified of heights, last time I got up there it took Amy an hour to coax me back down

Now don't forget the periodic late winter ice storms. I remember when I moved back to the Big D in Jan 03. Mid Feb it was sleet for 2 or three days before it started melting. The streets were bare. I was living in Lewisville and working in Plano so I just put it in 4 high, got in the George Bush toll way and scooted on to work each day. No traffic at all.

Glad you guys up north-west are well. Looks like those storms are moving east now.

Glad you guys didn't get too hard. Crap, down here in the Tri Cities, it was just a slightly windy day. No more than 35 to 40 mph...........

How are you re roofing a house in winter?
12-04-2007 11:20 PM
foxinthemudd I think some of the people around the area down here have flood damage. I know that a few I know who live in certian areas we can't even get ahold of them cause phones are down and the highways are closed. oh well hopefully open up tonight or tomorrow.

tiny terror I'm glad you're all ok. I didn't even know there was a storm up there.
12-04-2007 10:11 PM
amy Did you have the big blow too, Fox? I hope all of our PNW folks are ok.
We just got a flood warning because we went from 20 degrees and 4-5 inches of snow to 56 degrees, lots of wind and a whole bunch of rain.

Thanks for asking, Blu.
