Okay, so my Grandma has been wanting to put these foam inserts into her gutters for a while now, they supposedly keep the detritus out while allowing water though. To get them in, you have to really squeeze and stuff them into the gutter. She's finally decided to go out and get them tomorrow, and wants them put in the same day.
Now, we live in the Pacific Northwest, where it's cold and wet. It hasn't rained for a couple days, but the fog makes everything wet anyway, and the temperature's now below freezing for most of the day.
I have never gone up on a roof before. The only bit of 'safety equipment' I have is a length of climbing rope, no actual harness. The grade of the roof is fairly steep. This sounds to me like a recipe for disaster, even though I have a very good sense of balance. Am I being overly cautious in wanting to refuse to do it now, to wait until spring? If I do do it, how should I approach it to stay safe? Thanks for any replies!
