Hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving yesterday. Our neighbors, Dave & Jordan, invited us over for a hot shower and an excellent dinner, and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the company (and being clean for a change LOL).
The weather has been truly nasty this week. It warmed up to the low-mid 30's and proceeded to pelt us several inches of rain/ice. A lot of the snow melted or turned to slush, coupled with the rain-ice, making the roads and nearly everything super-slippery and treacherous.
So, after spending days scraping and shoveling snow, the cabin ended up flooded with rain :( We did manage to get a temporary tarp on to help stop anymore from getting in and hopefully allow what had already gotten in to drain. We kept getting drenched and frozen to the bone trying to get the end walls up. Believe me, plain old cold is way better than sorta cold and bloody wet!!
Then temps started falling and dumped a bunch of snow on us. It's still snowing - so the expected sub-zero temps haven't arrived yet. Hopefully we can those end walls completed before I head into town (convoying with Dave & Jordan) on Sun/Mon if the roads cooperate. So far, lots of Fairbanks and most of the roads have been closed down with this freak weather, so going in any earlier was pointless.
