The walls are half way up now! I’m still on target to get under roof by August but I’ve had some real weather issues. We had over 8 inches of rain in June and the heat has been stifling for the last three weeks. This combination has led to a huge explosion in the mosquito population. I hadn’t thought about weather conditions being such a challenge.
Rain makes the logs slippery and dangerous and on dry days the extreme heat makes working long hours in the sun just as dangerous as slippery logs. We have had several cases of West Nile virus here in Illinois over the past few summers so this heavy mosquito population is no small threat to those of us living in the woods. I watch the weather much more closely than usual hoping for a nice dry morning with a good breeze to carry the nippers away come Saturday morning.
Thanks again for sharing my journal and have a great day!
