“Good morning,” I called to the roofers. “It’s beautiful, and redder than I thought it would be.”
The foreman said the color would change at different times of the day, and in different seasons.
I imagine our roof shining up at the heavens, imitating the sun.
A new roof will keep the attic cool even when the temperature outside blazes. I wonder what it will look like under street lights at night.
I never thought much about roofs before. I can’t tell you much about the old roof except that it was grey asphalt. I don’t remember roofs of houses from when I was growing up.
But I like this roof. It has a 200 plus watt smile. I smile back at it.
