Taking a day off to work all day is kind of an oxymoron, but that’s what I did today. I hired Jonathan again to help out. He got the clay pipes out of the basement, removed some more walls from the dry house, and did some general pickup and clean up.
Around 3pm, it just started to pour. The ran was coming down so hard there was a good inch of standing water on my drive way. I quickly rushed to the basement to see if water was coming in. Sure enough, through the window by the bar it was coming in because the rain gutters were clogged.
I ran to the back yard where Jonathan was putting the plywood removed from the dryhouse walls and we placed them as lean-tos over the window wells. That helped a little.
I then went out and inspected the rain gutters. It was Bridal Veil Falls coming off the lowest rain gutter on the east side of the house, and it was splashing down right next to that window well where the water was coming in.
Looks like I need to clean the rain gutters.
At 5pm, people started arriving to help unload the truck. We worked on that and got all but the last 4-5 feet cleared out. We still have the piano and a bunch of boxes to unload — not to mention the 8′ long shelf.
We had Brandon Lewis and two of his sons, the missionaries and Elder Murphy, Tricia Cox and Alisa Day, Aaron (and I can’t remember his last name), and Chris Loren. They were all a huge help. Brandon is going to try to get some more men for tonight so we have enough to get the piano up the front stairs. It should go a lot quicker Thursday night.
Sorry – no pictures today.
Oh, I did manage to get some sample cards made for http://www.bayphoto.com/store.
