The Cold Wind Blows...

The wind roared in last night. With a thunderous crash one of the scaffolding setups was dashed, destroying a sawhorse it landed on and flipping a 2x10x14 gangplank through the air like a pancake.

When the wind blows in from the north up here, it has a way of penetrating to your bones in a matter of seconds. It doesn't look like I've made much progress but I was thinking about it last night-I really have. The slab set me back time wise but way ahead in the finances department. That savings was critical.

This is the extent of the building at the close of the first year. I'll be working on shaping the timbers in the workshop for springtime installation. Lately I have been occupied by FIREWOOD processing and today I have to run around and prepare for the season's first winter snowstorm which may begin dropping up to a foot of snow in about 30 hours from now.
