No rain last night and another sunny day today....one stretch of my road is still a swamp but there is a way around it. Made it out to run down to Study Butte to stock up for the next couple of threats of "isolated afternoon thunderstorms". Got truss 3 finished off with its temporary supports then got most of the gear moved for the truss raising on the other two containers.
My buddy Dan http://www.danwintersphoto.com/ and his son Dylan made it down today for a visit. They live in Austin and made a trip out to Marfa for the long weekend. Their visit to the Field Lab was almost shot down by the recent rain, but they made it. Dan and I worked together in NYC and he came out in April of 08 with our mutual former employer Chris Callis. We gave Dylan the tour, chewed the fat for awhile then did some shoot'n.
Hopefully the rain will hold off so I can get more rebar delivered on Tuesday...I need 70 more 20' lengths to build the other 3 trusses. Just talked to Betty...she is home finally - the GrubShack will be back in full swing on Tuesday.
