I'm working on 2 stressful software installs today (and then another one tonight.) Got to remember to breathe. All I can think about is quitting.
I did a short run this morning. 2.55 miles. 37° but no snow.
Then it was off to the office. First came the slow 8 miles of construction, and then came the I-64 parking lot. I checked my phone and it said there was a multi-car accident 4-5 miles ahead. I was near an exit so I took it, turned around, and came home to work. I don't know why I bother making the trip. It is a frustrating drive, most people I work with are working from home or in other cities, it's always too warm, too noisy, and too many drop-by interruptions. Not to mention going out for lunch and eating crap food.
Last night was interesting. Special condo association meeting to address the roofs that are wearing out faster than expected. 30 years roofs are failing after 15-18 years. There are 19 buildings with 4 condos each and then the clubhouse. The cost to fix them all is $433,000. (And that will go up as material and labor costs rise. We need to hope for fewer hurricanes these next couple years as they tend to raise material costs.) We ended up agreeing on a $50 a month assessment added to the dues over 42 months. Some of use would have liked to take care of things sooner but we have a lot of elderly people on fixed incomes and they wouldn't/couldn't go higher.
Sitting in a room with 50+ old folks is a trip. I'd like to make fun of them, but I will be one of them sooner rather than later, so I better zip it. A roofing guy was there explaining everything and it's like people weren't listening because they would ask questions that were just answered. Multiple people repeating each other. Maybe they can't hear what is said? Beats me. I was sitting there thinking how I could blow the whole room full away in a 5k.
Roofing guy said the shingles were (originally) fine, but the condos were not built with the proper roof venting. This causes the roofs to get hot and the granules to fall off too fast, exposing the asphalt shingles. When he does the new roofs he will redo the venting.
