Wednesday, July 4, 2012

Water supply for the laundry building
Richard and Neil joined me for some brain session on the ramp handrail and digging the end post holes. We are getting some bolts at Lowes to attach the post to the ramp joists also. Latter I connected the water piping into the building. The pipe that will come out of the ground is wrapped with heat tape and insulation and an outer case of plastic pipe.

Looking to the Rig on the right I could not see anything past it
Well it happened today the thunder storm hit about four-thirty while Bonnie and I joined others at happy hour celebrating our nations birthday. "Monsoon season", the first wave of rain lasted about a half an hour coming down and being blown so there was only a hundred and fifty feet of visibility as I looked out the Ranch house window.

Two windows were open on the car and Bonnie went and closed them, the drivers seat is wet.
Buster's awning after the storm

When we returned to Buster the awning was damaged, although I have known the support arm is worn (bolt hole) holding the drum to the arm was oversize. I will get some help in the late morning to reconnect that drum to the arm. there is plenty of watyer puddles on the streets and lots.
