long sunday shift...
Benita had breakfast this morning with her buddy Dennis Hopper. Outside edge welded on today. Seemed to take forever. Had to trim all the beams then mounted a 20 foot section across the middle. By the time I welded the south side piece on it was already 2PM. More stormy chances this afternoon so I headed south for generator gas. I wasn't fooled by the doppler radar when I got home so I cut and pasted the north piece on the long west beam. Today was the last good chance for rain - the 10 day forecast looks pretty dry. 93,101,69,0,B NOTE: Last year on this day it rained 1.15".
