Things I Learned While Doing Trusses in the Rain

  1. Wet wood is heavier.

  2. Wet plywood is slipperier.

  3. Walking on wet plywood in rubber boots is precarious. I'm grateful for all my experience on ice. It helped.

  4. Dragging a truss across wet plywood is easier. And having all the remaining trusses already up on the wall is a lot easier than lifting them.

  5. Feeling light headed on top of a wall is not a nice feeling. But it is survivable.

All this being said, we worked tonight in a very very light drizzle and all things went well. If life in general goes well tomorrow, I'll be able to post some pics.

Good night,

PS: We lit our first fire tonight. It was so chilly and damp. The living room is not habitable (too hot) but the rest of the house feels great.
