Snow on rooftops

Our story so far: As reality has caught up with this blog about converting a 126-year-old Methodist church into our home, I’ve run across a few odds and ends that occurred after I wrote about the subject initially. That’s how it goes with a real-time memoir. Sometimes stuff happens after publication. So this week, I’m sharing a few little stories that will ultimately be integrated into the relevant location in the memoir. Think of this as the time in the novel—especially a mystery novel—when you page back to reread a few passages to remind yourself about what’s going on. Here’s an update for Chapter 21.

As demoralizing as it was to see snow in April, it was nice to see how long it lasted on our well-insulated roof.

With the assistance of Reroofer, our agile roof walker, we pumped a thousand dollars of blow-in-insulation into the roof of the 126-year-old Methodist church. The proof was in the pudding, or in this case, in a late spring blizzard. Thanks to all that insulation keeping the heat inside, our house was the last one in the neighborhood with snow on the north roof.

Tomorrow: We return to the real-time memoir with the opening of Chapter 23. Finally, spring arrives. Read it here.
