It's rain again

As I think about the things I need to get done this year, I'm hoping this year brings better weather than last. I was rained out of many weekends last year.
My little addition project was scheduled to be sided and roofed by the end of October. If you lived in my neighborhood, you would have seen me finishing up the roofing in January and I'm still looking at Tyvek.
Working a day job leaves nights and weekends and many where washed out last year.
Anyway, random thoughts as we're yet again in a rain storm.


I tear things down and build them up.

Yeah...I'm hoping to get the rest of the house sided this year
Last year was a wash out for sure
I've already stripped the front & with the nice weather & time change I'm starting Tuesday on the front

Also yard clean-up this year
Getting rid of all the junk & organizing any building supplies surplus
Plus hopefully getting my rainwater recovery system fully setup
I picked up (2) ~300g tanks last year for free...just need a good cleaning

I hate to say it but I welcomed the rain here in Detroit this weekend. Same time last year, the thaw, melting snow and rain exposed a water issue in my basement. Water was getting into the HVAC run under my family room slab and trickled into the basement. So this month is a test of the french drain I broke my back on last year. SUPER HAPPY to say we have had 24+ hours of constant rain/drizzle, melting snow and the basement is bone dry.
