While we didn't get the plastic sheeting up to complete the shelter -- Lisa estimates that's nearly and all-day job by itself -- we did get a significant portion of the job done. Unfortunately, we have no more time yet, as I'm heading back to California tomorrow afternoon. So unfortunately it may not be until February or so before we can finish this, unless Lisa is able to score someone else to help her or if she can get it done herself. Still, she says having me there made a huge difference, because I could hand things up to the roof or brace things that would be awkward for one person, and so forth.
After spending a day standing in the cold, I ache considerably. I said to Lisa, "I wish we were at a hotel with a big hot tub," and she seconded that notion.
