The front page of the paper warned us to get it all cleaned and ready. This is new to us, and apparently the January (2008) the storm took out the electricity for a few days and was a mess. This is supposed to be of the same caliber.
Eric was up on the roof cleaning out the gutters...see that smile? This kid loves to work and be on the roof is a big thing!
He would throw the gunk...which is compost really and stinks off onto the ground and then run a hose to clean them all out. Our gutters are so clean! The water will rush right out and down the street!
The younger brother; Gabriel still is on the ground, and had a super attitude as he went around and scooped up the gunk Eric was tossing to ground. G-man was rather proud that he figured out to put the dust pan onto the garbage bin.
Even Tony got into cleaning it all up! The bushes needed to be cut back also. He is up there in his good clothers...*sigh*
Meanwhile, the girls were cleaning their room. Anna is under the bed and the treasures they found!
I went for a walk! lol,
