The morning was HOT...like super HOT, like dripping sweat and barely able to lift up the black shingles sweat. It was awesome-I love HOT. I especially love hot days when it is this close to September. It's like a little gift of Summer right before Fall's cooler temperatures arrive. It was hot.
These clouds are deceiving because they didn't really offer any relief from the sun and when the day started there wasn't much of a breeze. It was hot and sticky awesomeness. Kaden started out on the roof but quickly realized that keeping his cousins busy with Kiandra and Kezia was a much easier (and cooler!) way to help out.
We stripped off the old shingles all morning and then my BIL started laying the new shingles while the girls worked on the other side. We took a break for a yummy pizza lunch and then it was back to work.
Shortly after we were back to work...the clouds started to roll in which I think helped us to work a little quicker ;) The cloud cover helped make it a bit cooler too and a slight breeze was also helping too.
and then around 5:00, we were done! House completed the day before and garage today. Kiandra photo bombed Pam's after photo that she took just as it started spitting. Perfect timing.
We arrived home just in time for Kiandra to pack for her babysitting job....and I was glad to have the evening to veg out and recover from a day of squatting.
