Working around the corner from this today:

Beautiful Coronado! Who knew the neighborhood was impoverished with a lack of aluminum patio covers? The elevation of the city of Coronado is 20'. We're building a nice cover on top of a house, impressively doubling that. The weather is beautiful, and conditions are calm, with an airy contentedness. Birds are chirping.

Of course, this will all be shattered by my arrival with the four eight-foot columns, each weighing several hundred pounds each, that have to be moved up the tiny steel spiral staircase to the rooftop. Chirping will be replaced with cursing, no doubt, and the day will only be a success if we can do the job without death, injury, or destruction of property.
