July 20, 2009: Cupola going up on the house

  Well, we made it home.  The trip to Rhode Island was nice.  Eastern US WX Conference was fun.  Learned a bit about convective snow banding from one of the speakers.  Really enjoyed all of the talks, though.  Fun meeting people!   We made it home about 8 or 9 pm last night.  Was a long day of travel.

  The weather here is AMAZING.  Rain is on the way, though.  Tommy (my brother-in-law) is going to blame me for this!  He told me to stay in Rhode Island so the weather would stay nice here.  Oh well – what can you do.  I love rain.  🙂

  The Cupola – don’t ask me that is what they call it – is going on top of the house today.  Rodney, Don, and Nathan were working hard this afternoon on getting it up on the garage roof.

  Otherwise, homework and tests.  I have six tests in the next two weeks – including finals.  🙁  BUT – then it is ALMOST over.  One HUGE test at the end of the three year program – you have to make a B or higher on it to pass the entire program.  That has me stressing out already.  Anyhoo – no time to stress.  Just need to study and work on the current tests at hand.

  Some photos from today – as always you can click for larger image size


I am excited – they have the Cupola put together.
