|Around 2 AM
we double checked the horses and heard loud banging from the hay barn.
The wind was catching the metal roof panels and was trying to tear them off.
All we could do was get the frightened horses out and wait for daylight to see the damage.
|Because of the steepness of
the roof (and that Dick and Kick were recovering from the flu and
didn't feel like climbing up there) we thought it best to rent a man
The only drawback was that the machine had a built in safety switch. If it was more than 3 deg from level, it quit and they had to restart it
You would not believe how small 3 deg is.
checking the damage.
to get the machine level.
|The alarm went off almost
every 5 to 10 min.
Sometimes just walking to one side of the basket was enough to set off the alarm. Grrrrr.
Dick and Kick took turns in the basket, straightening, screwing and caulking and by 4 PM
the roof was back together.
