Made a morning run down to Study Butte....we got lots of showers floating around out there and I was almost out of coffee. Also picked up 5 gallons of H2O to go from H2O to Go. Missed Carolyn but stuck my money in the envelope and came back home. A bunch of longhorns followed me up the driveway and I had to show them some tough love. I gave them a scare and they stampeded out of here. Benita followed them out and got into it with some of them to make sure they stay away. Then she slowly made her way back and got her reward.
Late lunch at the GrubShack and didn't get to welding until about 4PM. Finished up all the welds by 8:15. Now the official tally is in: each truss takes 18 pieces of 20' rebar. Time logged on the generator which has mostly been used for the welding is 15.4 hours. Next step is to get 'er mounted on the containers (I think these are going to work just fine) ...then 5 more trusses to fabricate. Photo of the day is a funky bug that eats flies for me.
