You would think that the trades would take Sunday off especially since it continues to rain intermittantly, but the electrician just left after installing the outlets that will be in the middle of the slab. The form (cement people) fellows were here yesterday afternoon placing rebar in the foundation and doing a little more compacting. I think they are going to try to pour cement tomorrow, however, the plastic barrier has not been placed and a part of the form where they drove their mini-tractor out has not been installed. The contractor said they would pour Monday, so I guess they will finish up in the morning. I am not at all confident that there are not chunks of dirt, shavings, and rain water in the dust collection system pipe. Don’t know where I’m going to get a blower big enough to blow the piping clean and dry. I guess I’ll cross that road later. I love the rain, but this is rediculous. I hear how America is in great need of water, and Georgia is rationing what they have left, but Northeastern Florida is just fine! It’s been raining off and on for a week, sometimes heavily. There are rain “ponds” all over and our city retention ponds are full.

I’m bushed. I had to mow the lawn and blow the driveway because I was afraid the neighbors would start a petition to ask me to move if I didn’t clean up the construction mess around the property! However, I’ve nothing planned except the Jaguars football game for the rest of the day, and I need the rest. The construction on top of the normal stuff has left me exhausted.

I can’t help thinking about Myron and what he must be dealing with there in San Diego. I’m sure everything in his home smells of smoke, and there is a greasy smoke glaze on everything. He must be very tired also. And I’ll just bet he’s helping out his neighbors too. I’d be happy to lend the people of San Diego some of our North Florida rain!
