I don't normally identify myself as afraid of heights, but whenever I have to do work on a ladder, I remember that I am. Today I will be working on the roof of my townhouse. It is two stories down to the deck below, and two and a half stories to the ground on the other side. When I'm up there I get really nervous about falling. Not a paralyzing fear or anything like that, but it definitely has me being extra cautious. Maybe it is a good thing, in a lot of cases, a little fear is just the thing you need to make the good decisions to keep you from getting yourself killed. I'll keep that in mind as I do my roof repair and put up some antennas!
