Roofing on a Hot Day

Today was certainly a bit more demanding. The sun was high in the sky and the shingles didn't help make things cooler. I got to work up on the roof and shingle it today. There was no escaping the sun from up on the roof, and the angles in which we needed to work didn't help. It was hot, painful. and . . . a really fun day. I never saw myself doing a roof and here I was placing down shingle after shingle with Allen. It was a really fun experience and the best part was seeing the before and after. Tomorrow it will be done and we can admire our work. Our leader, Ryan, turned out to be a really great guy, which only added to the experience. Thank God for cold showers.
