A Whole Lot More

A Hundred Suns

When you depend on volunteers like we do, one little delay can cause a whole lot more.

Last Saturday we were supposed to finish half of the roof of the duplex, but instead it rained, and rained and rained. Not hard, just enough to make the ground really muddy, the wood all soggy and the roof slightly dangerous.

So no big deal, right? Just one day, right?

Actually, I'm not sure when I'm going to be able to get a roof crew again. The soonest would be this Saturday (and that would be in Awesomeworld where everything goes right).

And that means the windows and doors can't go in this week, and the siding can't go on next Saturday. Which means we actually have too many volunteers next Saturday and we'll need to bump some of them to another weekend (but not the following weekend because they're already busy that day).

And meanwhile I have a duplex with less than half a roof, no doors, no windows and no siding.


It'll get done, I'm just not quite sure how yet.
