I really did not want to, but after talking it over to my neighbor Tom, he convinced me it was worth the trouble to put the shutters up. The challenge seemed well worthy. Certainly it is not fun. However, only the first time is a bit awkward, and that it what I went through today. Once you put one or two of them up, they go up very quick after that. It does give you confidence once back inside the nearly dark house. To avoid total darkness, I left a few off the front main room and am leaving the main rear area open, so I can look out and enjoy the show. If it was a cat-3, then they would go up, and I would head out of town.
That was some good guesthouse property fixing this weekend. It is nice to get things done and have fun at the same time. On the fix list: water can funnel, key lock copies, patio leak attempt two, garage ceiling foundation fix, and moving the bush to the front! The garage ceiling foundation fix was a good one, that is rock solid and we can touch up the seam next trip. I can show you how to make the patio squares look perfect on the next weekend getaway. A lovely resort property is a good thing!
