Silent and loud at my home office today

It's a good thing I don't have any events and webcasts today because I have completely lost my voice after a bout with a sore throat this week. It's also a good thing I don't have webcasts today because they are putting a new roof on my house and it's NOISY NOISY NOISY. The house is almost 30 years old and in addition to tearing off the old shingles they are having to replace rotted decking as well - which I anticipated because there were several active leaks. At least I can have a comfort level that there won't be leaks for a while.
