Day Seven -- Rain on a metal roof

Right now it's about 105 degrees in Arizona and we've only had one measly rainfall this summer. It's ugly hot. When my thoughts turn to rain, they also turn to my childhood summers spent at the cabin above. The cabin has a metal roof and as kids we always wondered if it would rain when we visited and prayed it would. Being raised in Phoenix, rain was a scarce and welcome commodity. There aren't many better sounds to me than the sound of rain on a metal roof, a cheap, small blessing and one of my favorite yet simplest childhood memories.


  1. It does feel good to remember those childhood memories. Those times when you get amazed with simple things happening around you, like the sound of raindrops on a metal roof. Anyway, how is the metal roof on that cabin? Has it been replaced?

  3. I love cabins! I find it very relaxing to stay there, especially during rainy season when all you hear are the raindrops falling on the roof. I just hope that your roof is strong and sturdy enough to last longer like the rest of the materials used to build the cabin. It was made with logs, am I correct? I like how the logs smell during wet weather.

  4. Whew, that looked like a lot of work! I'm glad you were able to pull it off real nicely. Metal roofs are favored among many since they are more durable against the ever-changing weather. And the aesthetic is applicable to almost any type of houses. Just make sure to seek professional help when needed.
