Glad you were not more seriously hurt or worse.
One of our church friends is no longer with us from just cleaning the gutters on his house and he was just in his late 60's.
Ladders are nothing to laugh at, lots of folks get hurt. So be careful.
I have a porch with a low roof that leads up to the second floor high roof.
I set a latter from low roof to high roof many many times with no problem. When the roofers were here putting on a new roof, I was installing new attic fans. Set the ladder in the same place as always, but it was just on the new felt and not the roofing. Felt tore and ladder kicked out right as I got to the top. What a ride that was. Ruined the ladder and almost ruined me too.
So be careful out there.
