Ok, we had a some severe rain here (Henrico county) outside Richmind, Virginia, this past day or so. Power went out this morning. A friend had plans to do some work with several friends for assistance.

Well someone said we could nor proceed due to no power. Well his father in law asked why that should stop it. We have hand tools and pencils. Needless to say, hand tools it was, the wives cooked on 3 grills, and the work was completed before nightfall.

It was fun. Some learned some new skills and some brushed up on forgotten, not used skills.

Have a great weekend everyone.
