Over the past couple of days, the shop has been worked on and is coming along nicely. It is very solid construction. The walls and roofs are up and most of the red tin is on. We also rerouted some underground irrigation around the side of the shop. Today, a sudden, harsh storm came up very fast, and I mean within 5 minutes.

Hello fellow Lumberjocks, As you know, Hurricane Ike came calling on us down in the Houston area causing a significant amount of destruction. This has been one of the worst storms I can remember and I have lived in the Houston area all my life. We were without power, land phone, Internet and cell phone service for several days.
