Something’s landing on my roof
Occasionally around 7 in the evening I’ve been hearing what sounds like something landing on my roof over the kitchen area. The other day I noticed this tree had grown over the roof in that spot so I thought it would be a good idea to cut the tree back so the the rat I think has been jumping onto my roof this way can’t do it any more.
Whacked the tree back
I got out a small hand operated tree saw and cut the trees back. I still have to remove the brush I cut, but not today.
Puttered around until evening
Most of the day I just puttered in the yard as it was hot. But when it started to cool in the evening I decided to tackle another problem I have. The back of the van’s roof was leaking. I noticed it on my last trip when it rained. Not good as my bed goes back there and a wet bed isn’t fun.
Couldn’t detect any leaky areas
The water test
Cleaning out the gutter
That meant I needed to clean out all the old sealer in the gutter all the way across the back.
First pass done
I call this my first pass as I need to clean it up even more if I want the new sealer to stick and not leak. So I got it down to this clean so far and will continue another time as doing this kind of work when your fresh does a better job.
I put those tools away an spent the rest of the day chair hopping around the yard.
