Glass dropper in hand, huddled around a kitchen table in the historic district of downtown Alexandria, Va., we discovered the answer: with great difficulty.The day previous, atop scaffolding in the driving rain, Jay pried off a return from the termite-damaged cornice of a house on Prince Street. We heard the sound of scampering, and a rust-red squirrel exploded out from the darkness of rotted wood. It balanced briefly on Jay's arm, seemed to consider the weather, then trotted down the side of the building. So it goes when you're replacing the entire cornice on a 19th-century townhouse. Back to work.The following day, as we replaced termite-ridden framing, a splinter of wood fell on the yellow grating of the scaffold. Just before we swept it onto the waiting canvas 40' below, the splinter moved, and revealed a dun-colored belly, tiny whiskers and two slits where eyes should be.
