Wet Wednesday.

So, it's been raining . . . again. What's new?! The way the spring's gone so far, it's apparent that we've chosen to build during the wettest spring/early summer in years. I wonder just how much this is going to throw our timetable off-schedule? (Probably a lot.)

Tom experienced a 40 degree drop in temperature during the trip home yesterday. What a difference 300 miles makes! When he left the Cities it was 87 degrees, hot, humid, and miserable. Here it was rainy and 47 degrees. Needless to say, he was glad to be home!

We have to head up to the property this afternoon to do some scouting of property lines. The DNR contacted us regarding a timber harvest they are doing directly north of our property. It stinks that they'll be logging so close to us, but it's terrific (and not all too common) that they contacted us first. Because property boundaries aren't set in stone in our area (too remote), they wanted to meet us out there to mutually agree upon the line. So, we'll confirm that northern boundary with the GPS this afternoon and then we'll meet the DNR rep tomorrow.

But, before that, I need to get plans out to our Plan B cement guy for the house and garage slabs. We've since found out that Plan A cement guy is notoriously high-priced . . . although good. Plan B guy is supposed to be fairly-priced and also good. So, I suspect it will come down to who can do the work first (hopefully Plan B cement guy).

Meanwhile, the laundry on the line has gone through a full rinse by Mother Nature and is wetter than when I hung it two days ago! Ahh, such is life.
