The Pictures Tell the Sad Tale
No matter what angle you viewed it from, it was definitely leaning.
So back in we went and in less than 5 minutes. We heard another crash. DH says "That has to be the chimney."
He went up to survey the damage. Its hard to tell from this picture that he is on a roof, but he is many feet above the ground.
So he determined that since it is too cold for mortar to set, we will have to do without the use of our woodstove for the rest of the winter. I sure hope we are done with the coldest part of the winter and will just coast out the rest of it. Dare I hope?
