Up On The Roof

by Ellen Batchelor

No this is not the 1962 Drifter’s song!!


The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum is getting a long-awaited new roof!


While watching the workers climb to the 32 feet peak, I noticed I was not the only one watching! The visitors to the museum were also watching
while the workers swung from spot to spot while perched on the side of the roof!


Can’t help thinking how these guys really “earn” their money. The temperatures are a lot more intense up there with nothing to block out the sweltering sun, not to mention the heat emanating from the metal roof.

Work on the roof is expected to last for up to 9 weeks.  But, the Museum will be open regular hours, (9:00am to 5:00pm, 7 days per week), during the entire re-roofing project.  We apologize in advance for any dust, noise, or inconvenience of any kind.

“Up on the roof … it’s peaceful as can be … “
