« Part 2: More on Preliminary Thinking about the Shop Part 3 of Finally, My Dream Shop series Part 4: The Rain Stopped...Now I have Tadpoles ! »

Well, the trees still stand due to rain. Monday we cancelled the removal. Tuesday we cancelled the removal. Thursday is the next date the “Tree People” could commit to, so we will see. I can tell you that on Tuesday night at 8 P.M. it is raining hard and soon I will have to look for those big ship anchors to weight my house down!

The water table is two shovels deep in these parts so “ponds” well up easily. In fact, there is a formal Florida Retention Pond behind my property. I guess the water has to go somewhere! The good thing is that it is really cheap to drill for water! I have two wells, one which irrigates my property and one for the house. My home is in a gated community and the residents here voted down a city proposal to bring city water to our homes. Why pay for what is free? Well water works fine and with a good softener/filter, is near city quality. Many homes in these parts are on wells.

I will upload three pics of the area behind the garage where the new workshop will live…..if it ever stops raining, that is. It looks pretty scruffy now, but the “Tree People” promise to fix that…...someday.

Hello Calgirl;
—-pardon my sense of humor, but I was just thinking that maybe….” the trees called the ‘rain people’ to cancel out the ‘tree people’....oh well it really has been a long day….LOL

Lookin’ forward to seeing some activity at your new shop soon….
Thank you.

The tree’s are calling for help.

I hope you plan on resurrecting the wood for something beautiful.
