"I think everyone will get a kick out of this. These are pitchforks a roofer decided to store on the roof so they wouldn't have to take them down for a several day job.

Of course they weren't working today.

Steven,

Is anything holding it up there? It looks like it is just resting against a ventpipe. Wow! If that doesn't look like an accident waiting to happen! [Linked Image]

You got it right, just resting on the vent pipe. There are two actually resting against the vent and a third resting against the handle of the other two. I got in touch with the roofer and got them to remove them within an hour or so.

Is the wife using the doors on the other side of the house exclusively now?
Has the husband recently had an increase in insurance coverage...that he is unaware of?
Inquiring minds want to know?

Steve,

That is 3 pitchforks in that photo?
Unbelievable .. Wow,
What were these guys thinking?

Did you go on the roof to take one of those pictures? It looks like the one on the right has a higher perspective.
