Rain, Rain, Go Away!

I love the sound of rain on the roof. There’s nothing better than a good rain, and if I can have thunder and lightning, it is even better. However, I have hair issues, so I want that rain to come at night or on a day when I can stay home and get comfy with a good book. 

The lack of rain this summer has been one of those good thing/bad thing dilemmas. It is hard to keep grass, flowers and other flora alive and well when we are in a drought situation. But it definitely helped to keep the new library project on target. For some reason, builders prefer a dry season when working. Must be something about working in the mud! 
 
Below you will see the front/side (drive-through) view of the new building as of October 29th.
