It truly is tragic....and yes, there was another incident last year I think it was? Can't remember what the incident was but it was in the news....I feel terrible for the families involved... thank God it/they didn't go off the bridge though!

No end to commercial as stores must open. Provisions are written up as needed. Had to tent one last year & run heaters.

It has been a tough summer for this old guy. Rain killed the schedule at the start. That created the mad rush to get things caught up when the weather finally cooperated. Then I had two exteriors where I had no options but to use ladders to do all the climbing. One, a house, had two sides on steep sloping hills where scaffolding would not work. The other, was a commercial building in a busy downtown area, 3 stories of nothing but 1920's era windows that hadn't been painted in 25 years.

I usually enjoy exteriors, but I find myself longing for those 8ft high interiors.

Looks like we had virtually the same summer. I didn't do one thing outside this year that didn't involve sloped ladder placement around complicated landscaping, etc.

All I wanted was just one, nice, single story job where you didn't have to bring every single ladder you own to get it done.

Our last exterior of the year. All soffits were sanded down and refinished. All original trim was in oil based DTM (plenty of sanding on the barge boards and sills. Primed all trim for conversion to acrylic. Probably a bit of overkill but I wasn't going to risk failure.)60' boom for the front and most of the west side and every ladder size imaginable for the rest. Plants, rockery stairs, water features, etc...PITA!! SO GLAD SUMMER IS OVER!!

Not so much around these parts. These were our snowbanks from last year.
