I was rather surprised when I crawled up the first time to find the waterfall gutter relatively clean. Perched close to the top step, I finally realized just how much roof area drains into two long lengths of gutter. It's a LOT!!
We got so much rain in so short a time, the gutter simply couldn't handle that many gallons without overflowing. It doesn't help that it's practically level either. Still, I drug the ladder all the way around the back, checking every few feet.
This is all I got in the way of gutter trash. Hardly a drop in the bucket, so to speak, considering there's probably 150 feet of gutters. There is one more long length I need to check out in front, but directly underneath are flowerbeds.
There's no way I'm putting a ladder in that soft dirt and crawling to the top. What I really need is a drone to do a fly by and check it out. What a great new business!! Let me drone your gutters!! Hopefully it will be sunny and warm for the next few days so the beds will dry and I can check the last waterfall.
All the while I was outside, Jonathan was trying to get a little attention. He was screaming for the kitty kitty kitty and generally rocking out, discoing around his cage. The little trouble maker chewed up his stick in no time and pulled the paper from the floor up through the bottom of the cage, making mincemeat of it.
Then, just for fun, he somehow finagled the catch pan on the very bottom, all the way out of the cage. I came in to a lovely mess on the floor. You can tell by his expression he's saying it wasn't him!! Yes, birds can be little brats!
I've been playing hermit for the last few days .... it costs me less that way .... but it's time to head out for some groceries and pick up a quilt that's been completed, as well as it's Magic Kingdom time again.
In the meantime, I've finished the binding on the last quilt. Minnie Mouse has arrived!! Pictures tomorrow.
