I managed to get one lower side done, and then our friends Jeff and Maria came last weekend and we made more progress. Bill and I figured if we worked an hour or so every day after he gets home from work, we can get the rest of it done by this coming weekend. The only glitch in this plan is that it is now getting dark by about 6:30, so I got some big halogen lights so we can work as late as we need to. With any luck we will have the metal roofing on by the end of this weekend (or most of it anyway).
And, although I have not mentioned it because it’s not directly related to the ranch, Bill has moved his Surveying office from Winthrop to Twisp, which is a big deal. He was in the old place for 13 years, so it’s been quite a process to pack everything up and get it all in place without interrupting his work, which is getting very busy these days.
As I write this on the morning of October 15th, there is a light drizzle outside. It sprinkled off and on all night- it’s the first rain we’ve had in a long time and most welcome. The dust has been getting really bad, and the lawn has been looking brown. I am going to take this opportunity to clean the house and update this blog and have a relatively quiet day.
Stay tuned for more news in a couple of weeks.
