I actually climbed up on the extension ladder tonight and cleaned out one whole rain gutter. No, we are not expecting rain anytime soon. In fact it was 98 degrees today. Not when I climbed up to the roof. I have a deathly fear of heights so this was quite the accomplishment for me. I just tried not to look down. My arms feel pretty weak right now from holding on so tightly.
There were two dead baby pidgeons and about 40 pounds of pidgeon poop in that one gutter. There are lots more gutters to go. But, not tonight. Tonight, I'm celebrating my small victory. Babysteps here.
