Winter is Not Saying Goodbye

07 Apr

We had a snowstorm yesterday and today we awoke to the howling wind.  My husband and a friend (thanks Stewart) were able to get the classroom almost done…everything except the roof.  The room is basically the other half of a building that we built a couple years ago.  Later this summer we plan on constructing an outbuilding for storage and opening the classroom to the other side to double the space.  The weather is prohibiting the roof going on today, so we’ll have to wait and see if that gets done while we still have road access.
