The big spring had snapped. I just talked to the garage door people...they're headed out here this morning to replace it.
Update: The repair person is here...just as an FYI, it is a very bad idea to store your big generator in front of the back door to the garage. This poor guy is working in a hot FL garage and can't even open a door to get a breeze. It is impossible to lift the garage door without the spring because it is one of those heavy hurricane-rated doors - he said it's going to take him about an hour.
On a quilting-related note, I finished making the borders for the Hip to be Square quilt and snapped a pic this morning
Happy Tuesday :)
