Gutter Disaster!

As you all know, Northeast Ohio got slammed last weekend with a record setting snow storm. As a result to that storm, we couldn't have had nothing go wrong....what were we thinking?! Come Monday afternoon, Chris got home from work and noticed our gutter above our deck in the backyard was not exactly where it should have been....


Due to heavy snow and ice, the gutter and fascia board could not take the weight any longer. It actually was a blessing in disguise, considering the wood under the gutter was completely rotten. So, we had my parents come over for a little direction from my dad. With him just having surgery, he couldn't do anything, but he was a great foreman! We went to Home Depot and bought some new wood and got to work!







Even though we couldn't feel are hands, face, or legs(more me), we got the job done and it's as good as new! Why couldn't this have happened when it was warmer out? But with only having to spend a whopping $8.00 and a couple hours of time...not bad for a days work! Thanks dad for all your great direction, we couldn't have done it without you (well, we probably could have, but it would have taken us a lot longer and probably many arguments)!

That stinks! You're right though as soon as your barely think "wow nothing has happened in awhile" it hits!! At least if was a cheap fix, not a huge bill from someone!! Hope you guys have warmed up!
