My father called me with an interesting dilemma last week. We had a ice storm a little over a week ago in Nashville. Because of the ice, my father’s roof developed an ice dam. The ice dam caused a leak in his home. He started to call a professional to help with the problem, but decided he would try to fix it himself.
In a safe manner, he climbed on his roof and raked the ice off of his rook where the leak was occurring. This immediately ceased the leaking.
I think it was pretty interesting that my father knew nothing about fixing an ice dam, but he found a way to solve the problem.
After speaking with my father, it gave me today’s blog topic.
