Longfellow said it best:
“Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.”
So yes, it IS still winter, Spring doesn’t officially begin for another week or so. This year has been very dry, rainfall-average-wise, and we have definitely benefitted from the dry February when it came to our concrete pours. However, I have NO patience – I want my house back, or at least rebuilt in a close facsimile of its former glory! As of today, some of the downstairs walls have been framed, but before they could be raised up to vertical form, the crew had to quit. It looks like Friday (3/16) is when we will finally see vertical walls rising up from the ground!
