Raking record

This really belongs in my private daily log, but for some reason I started recording it here, so will continue the tradition.

This picture is old; two years ago I finally figured out that raking is easier and safer WITHOUT the ladder. I don’t know why it took so long to try it both ways!

12/31/21: First roof raking of this season. Later than usual. About four inches.

Unexpected sight today: Birds. We’ve been supercold for a week, the first serious cold spell in 10 years. I haven’t seen or heard any birds in a month. Today they’re gathering and flapping around in 13 degrees. What do they have in mind?
