It was bound to happen. We now have snow on the ground, and it is cold. Not a fun snowstorm, either. Snow, then enough rain to compact the snow and form a thick crust of ice, then more snow.
I do smile when I see snow sitting on the JayBee's metal roof, and as it curls and slowly slides off.
The cats were not happy. It took a bit of coaxing to get them to take brief forays out in the stuff.
It takes more coaxing for me to get myself out there as well. It's the time of year that I'd like to be curled up inside where it's warm. Thankfully, once I'm actually out there and working, I seem to have no problem sticking with it.
Here are some of the weird shingle shapes it took to finish the west wall.
One more row done.
Finally, the last row done!
Yup, it was dark again when I finished.

Here are some great pictures of Boston--taken while on a walk in East Boston on Christmas Day. It got as warm as 70 degrees while I was there!
