Weather delay

Haven't gotten much done on projects for the last couple weeks.

We've been having snow off and on for that time, and that tends to slow down our production.

Crys did get the trees planted somewhere in there. There's a legendary account of her battle with the mud monster but I'll leave it to her to relate it. I'm pretty sure I couldn't do it justice.

I spent a lot of time working to get power back on in Evergreen and back down in the valley. That included 2 days of being up at Summitville Mine along with some snow shoeing and a fair amount of wicked driving. Finally, today is a bit quieter. Only one call out so far today. It's kinda windy so we're not what you'd call pumped to get outside and lean into the wind.

Crys is working on her Phat Fiber boxes and I'm cooking and cleaning. It's a good spring day.

A step at a time

The dome green house is still relaxing a bit before we spend time altering it's shape to fit what we wish it to be.

Today I worked on the solar shed roof in prep for the new panels. That meant cutting out the terribly ill advised raised port hole for pulling the pump rod on the well and replacing it with a flat and water repellent roof. That and replacing the shingles where the original satellite dishes were. Did you know that when they move the dishes they leave the old mounts in place?

Do you wonder why?

I'll tell you.

It's because they use some kinda crazy stickum that removed the shingles if you try to remove the mount.

Fuck that. I replaced the shingles.

Perhaps in a weekend or two I'll get to work on placing the new rails for the new solar panels. That'll be fun.
