There will be snow tonight, someone just told me.
Oh, well. That's nice.
Once upon a time, I watched the weather forecast every day, and looked at weather websites nearly hourly. That was back when the roof leaked and the walls needed rebuilding. Then, I looked at weather even more carefully when we rebuilt the walls and installed the new roof. After all, I am doing all of the scheduling for our rehab and that's a big responsibility.
Now, we have many weather-sensitive items left, like window and door work and painting, but nothing that brings in the danger of water infiltration or debilitating work stoppage.
If anyone thinks that means the good times are rolling at our house, be aware that the regained time is headed straight into catch-up work on long-delayed interior projects.
As one can see, committment to historic preservation is no abstract proposition around this house.
