I went to make a simple repair on my gutter today. At first things were going well and I thought it would be done quickly and easily. Next thing I knew it wasn't going so well-(the small pieces downspout I was working on split twice). It was then that I noticed that the larger downspout was split in several places. Suddenly a small and easy project had become a larger and harder one-isn't life like that sometimes? So I ended up at Lowe's once again (my second home) where I bought all the necessary material I would need to make the repairs. Tomorrow I start all over again.
