A Lost Week
Weather and work have conspired together to prevent any progress at all this week. We have experienced the heaviest snowfall for a good few years on Thursday and Friday and now a thaw has set in we have flooding. Ironically I was in snow free Scotland when the worst of the snow occurred and it was Saturday before I was able to get to the barn to check things. It was as wet as it has ever been, snow had blown in and then melted leaving pools of water in places that have never been wet even in the torrential rains we have experienced, thawing snow seems to find its way into places that rain doesn’t. There was now damage to the backbones but the lofting floor is wet and so are the covered pallets of timber. Applying epoxy to damp cold timber is not a good idea so there really is little I can do. I need things to dry out and warm up a bit. I’m trying not to get stressed but having just pulled my work hours/days average ahead I am now losing again. Roll on spring!
