    You got our snow that we had for 3 days or what's left of it, it got up to 8 inches or more here and just stopped yesterday. Been melting and drying out today I put another pole up and nothing more today cause I can't move any equipment yet, too slippery on the clay.

    Early snow that makes everything slick and muddy sucks, give me a good freeze to go with it. You can always plow the white stuff and keep going.

    I broke ground with the ground still frozen with temperatures going down to 40 below zero when I started this build and kept going when it hit 110 plus degrees, I will finish on a frozen ground if need be. Can't stop this combat vet only slow me down.

    They did use lube on the installation. Was uncomfortable, but not a big deal.

    Finally got the problem fixed with an outpatient procedure called Uro Lift. Google it, it may not be for you, or your urologist may not do it, but I was able to quit the meds, and best of all, I can clear my toes when taking a wiz.
    No post op problems. First time I urinated there were two drops of blood, a little burning, and that was it, nothing but good stream after that.

    Get at her. Don't know when your next snow is coming, but we're supposed to catch it tomorrow. Probably stick around this time.

    We are 6 weeks behind schedule, so snow is a big concern.

    Finished all the bottom row of house wrap all around the shop and installed the last 5 windows. Next to do the upper sections of house wrap, which will be smaller pieces, but have to do it off ladders.

    Re: Son's New Shop

    Synthetic fabric has been all repaired. Only had one 62' length totally ripped of by the bad winds a few days ago. We replaced that strip. Got some of the seam tape and used it on all overlapped seams. Now back to ready for roofing tin when we next get lower winds. Looks like not till next Monday, but could be sooner since the weather guessers are not all that reliable.

    It's a miracle that much stayed on from looking at how it's held down. Looked at your weather it looks it always windy there in fall/winter, good luck in fighting the wind. I'm having problems with bolt holes lining up on mine, going to use a 5 ton chain fall to pull the last quarter of inch it needs for holes to line up.

    Those can be a challenge even in the original grain bin configuration... not too surprising it's giving you a workout with the change in design. Alignment punches will be your friend. A short piece of slightly smaller all thread also works good for pulling things the right direction.

    I was using two different size Phillips screw drivers and that wasn't working when trying. Actually pulled it once for the beginning two sheets with ratchet strap to get it right when the screw drivers wouldn't align them. I believe there is slack left somewhere just going to take some pulling power to pull it out.

    Helped a neighbor about 6 years ago put up a quanset and we used a spud wrench like this to line up bolt holes. Worked really well.

    I found a chipping hammer for knocking slag off works well with 3 lb hammer to knock it in.

    The ratchet handle will work the same. It is a pain to line up the holes no matter what tool you use.

    I have one in my tool box.
    Works great putting up metal buildings.
