Here’s our project for Saturday. It doesn’t look like much, does it? Well, I guess the picture might be a little misleading. I guess what I should say is that this is a picture of the materials needed for our upcoming project for Saturday.
As those of you who follow me on Facebook know, we caught the trailing edge of a pretty severe storm system on Monday night. Luckily, despite the thunderstorm warnings, and the tornado watch, we didn’t get much of the really bad stuff like a lot of folks north of us. But we did get some pretty strong gusts that made us wonder a few times if that was going to hold true.
But it did. However, we didn’t come through completely unscathed. When I went out with the dogs the next morning, Cricket let me know immediately that there was a disturbance in her Force. It turned out that the severe gusts we’d heard the night before, had left their calling card for us, and now we get to deal with the aftermath. For the moment, I have it braced up with some spare wood. Saturday, MBH and I will get to do the grunt work on digging up the old post, and putting the replacement in place. Not a big deal, except that while we’re doing the repairs, we have to keep a closer eye than usual on the girls so they don’t wander off. The quick-crete I bought says it should be strong enough for us to put the fence back in place in four to six hours, so it’s not all that bad.
Hmmm… I guess I should check the forecast for this weekend, shouldn’t I?
Well crap! 100% chance of rain for Saturday. I guess I’ll be doing this on Friday, instead. (sigh) All right, so be it. If any of you hear about an out of shape old man in Oklahoma who dies in a tragic fence-post accident, you’ll know what happened to me.
Now, since I spent a good portion of the day yesterday trying to track down the right parts for this little project, and a couple more hours today on the road going to get them, I need to keep this post short and sweet today. So that’s all I’m going to blog about today, so I can get back to writing.
Stay safe everyone. I’ll talk to you later.
