1/15/08 This was the initial view I had when I arrived. I could see that part of the roof had slipped. Bad news.


1/15/08 Three panels had slipped from off the gable eave and buried themselves in the snowbank.


1/15/08 The underside of the slipped panels from the porch. You can see the dark marks where thermal expansion and contraction had rubbed the panels against the tarpaper. The marks are where the clips had held the panel tightly against the tarpaper.


1/15/08 You can see the extent of the damage to the panels. They look like they are damaged too badly to be salvaged.


1/16/08 After a lot of HARD work, the snow was cleared from the ridge and from the tarpaper. You can see Mt. Mastiff in the background.


1/16/08 If you look closely, you can still see the two rows of clips still in place. After a lot more hard work, I put two more screws in the top of each panel. I could see that a lot more of them were getting ready to go. I hope the four screws that are holding them now will keep them up there untli spring. Then, I may put even more screws in.


1/16/08 A closeup of the top ends of the three slipped panels. Of the six screws that were supposed to keep the panels in place, four of them just pulled through two inches of steel. Two others were pulled out of the OSB and dragged down with the panel. There must have been a huge amount of force on the panels to do that. Below the rips in the steel, you can see the row of screws I put in to hold the panels in their new position. I don't want them slipping any further. I'll just trim them off at the roof edge and install new panels above them.


1/16/08 Two more panels had slipped over the eave on the other end of the building. These only slipped a couple of feet. You can see part of my safety rigging.


1/17/08 I will leave the repairs to the roof until spring when it isn't so cold and slippery working on the roof.


1/17/08 The tarpaper is covered with a tarp so the snow will slide off for the rest of the winter. That's all I plan to do on the roof until spring except for trimming the panels off.


1/24/08 The panels have been trimmed off at the roof line and part of each one is still buried in the snowbank. I'll wait until spring to get them out.`
