Dead calm this morning so I scurried up the ladder and affixed the first transparent panel into place. This last section is going to be rather time consuming as each screw requires 3 different size drill bits. I reckon the process will evolve over time. The winds picked up just as I was finishing the last couple of fasteners.
Long lunch at the GrubShack. Eva gave me a great early Christmas present - Benita cookies. Would never have imagined that someday I would get cookies that looked like my pet longhorn cow. Eva really gets a gold star!
20 - 25mph winds all afternoon so I stayed off the roof and began working on my lighting scheme for this year's holiday season. Got one strip mounted and I think the plan will work. Going for a very ordered/minimalist light show this year. 54,81,31,0,W
