I cannot say today is the calm before the next storm. We are expecting another storm tomorrow, but today was not calm; it was extremely windy. It was quite a sound, hearing all the bare trees knocking against each other in the wind. Nice blue sky, though, and sunny.
The cold is always easier to take when in the sun, so I started on the sunny south side. Another window trimmed out!
Next up: trimming the window on the north side. There were good reasons why I had avoided going back there to finish up the window flashing. It was hard to imagine how I was going to navigate the ice and snow back there. And check out the snow on the roof! I could just see all of that letting loose and sliding off right when I'm underneath it all.
The bottom layer is thick ice that slants down the hill. Once when I fell, I almost disappeared underneath the JayBee. One good thing: The north side was sheltered from the wind. After my first exploratory trip back there...
A few trips of slipping and wrestling...and I had this set up. I completed the flashing around the window...
and started all the screws in the window trim.
Here is the trim resting on the plank, ready to be lifted into place.
After I was done, I almost had a highway back there.
North side window all trimmed out!
