Over the last few days Hilary and I have spent some time in between the rain and frost, repairing the roof and felt on the horse’s field shelter, it has suffered from lack of maintenance over the last few years and was leaking like a sieve.
On Friday I finished laying the under-felt ready for the top felt to be laid as soon as the weather allowed. Yesterday was OK but I had arranged to collect a new trailer for hay and upcoming building works so the roof would have to wait……
I looked out of the window this morning and the winds had got up overnight and blown some of the underlay off! Dressed and out with hammer and nails to make emergency repairs, just in time for the snow flurries to start! The snow and sleet continued while I was on the roof and while I fed the animals and mucked out the horses. Dogs walked, the sleet stopped and the sun came out, just in time for coffee. Can’t win sometimes…….
The Slaley snow storm….!!!
