5C and...

Not falling very quickly.  In fact, it'll be into December before the nights will be cold enough for me to even begin thinking about flooding.

 The other day I was outside doing yardwork in shorts and a t-shirt.

 It's the end of November.

2009-2010 Edition

 It was a beautiful +10C type of day on Saturday, so I put up the main framework for the rink... Only took about an hour and a half and it was complete.  I still have to drive a few 2x4 stakes down along the 2x12s for added support... Probably do that today.

 I've been having difficulties with Home Depot and the liner I've been buying every year.  Seems like the first time I called them (I've been visiting the store every 3 or 4 days to see if they've come in) they stated they weren't carrying them anymore.    Then I called Jay in the Soo to check his store - voila.  They had 9.  I called our store back and, "Oh yes, we just don't have any and we don't know if we're going to get any" was the tale I was told this time.

 Jay has offered to pick me up one in the Soo and throw it on the Greyhound to get to me.


 Of course, it's still way above zero here... barely gets below 0 at night yet.   Crappy summer, but it's carrying over to the fall.
