I looked at solar options and of course, the wonderful selections of innovative green roofs, but alas, my budget is forcing me to either prepare for some leakage or revert back to traditional shingles.

Like most Americans, the economy has been foremost on my mind. The downturn in the stock market, rising prices and the threat of a recession or worse is a cause for concern, but it also a good opportunity for reflection and evaluation.
