Painters arrive

Report by Dennis Casebier

It was about 35 degrees on the front porch at 6:30 AM. There's a bit of a breeze this morning.

As I come back south on and along Lanfair Road I always angle over and walk through the construction site. I was surprised to find the painters there getting ready for several days of painting.

The guy in charge is Brandon and his work force is Rich. Nice guys. As a convenience to us ditch diggers and backhoe operators, they are going to do the west side fist since we have a tentative plan of laying a 2" water line along there tomorrow in a ditch to be excavated by Gail Andress.

As I understand it the weather should be clear through sometime Wednesday or Thursday when some kind of system might come in. Hopefully they'll get the painting finished.

This morning Gus and Morris are busy moving scrap lumber away from the construction site out to the lumber yard so it won't be in our way when we are digging tomorrow.
