(Second post today, see the first one here)
Before John left, after finishing the fencing, Mr. Granny talked him into cleaning the pine boughs off of our roof. It really looked like we had a thatched roof after that big windstorm! I was going to climb up there and do it myself, but Mr. Granny said "Absolutely not!" and refused to hold the ladder for me. I'm kind of glad, as I wasn't looking forward to walking all over that roof!
The pine trees are messy, but we've never had a mess quite this bad. Of course, the next door neighbor lost three big pine trees, so this is minimal compared to the damage she had.
This was all from the south side (front) of the house.
The back side (north) was almost as bad. The shingles are stained from the wet pine needles. Hopefully a good rainstorm will take care of that.
Lots of cleanup to do, so I hope we have good weather tomorrow. I'm too tired to tackle it tonight. And I have to go wash the dog poo off of my shoes. If there's one pile in the yard, you can be sure I'll step in it. :-(
