. . . when after a rain, even the fences sigh with relief!
Actually, there is a back story to this.
Years ago, before I realized California’s shake shingle roofs were a far cry from the tin roofs I grew up with, I was heading over to my parents-in-law’s house by myself. They were at work, and I was supposed to let myself in to take care of something.
I was very concerned to see that possibly their house was on fire. I wasn’t sure what I should do because it didn’t look like a typical fire. It seemed to be smoking all over! I called my mother-in-law, and I checked in the attic crawl space. I also did a whole lot of sniffing around the house. No smoke, no smell, and yet, there was that roof!
If I had looked around me, I would have noticed that all the roofs were “smoking” because after a good rain and the return of sunshine, all that soaked up moisture starts to evaporate here in sunny Cal. Weird.
Tin does not steam!
