Blowin' Up a Storm

They started on the siding today and got one side of the garage done and the end of the house.  It is looking so good!  Like I said before, picking out the colors is hard, especially when all you have to look at is a little sample - but I think we picked some colors that are going to look really nice together.  And, even if we didn't, it's too late now!  But we did.  And remember how we were going to stick really close to the colors we had before?  Well, we didn't.

Thankfully we got the windows installed last week, because it doesn't sound like this week will have the weather for it.  We might not get much more done on the house this week because they're calling for some very strong winds the next couple of days - wind gusts up to 60mph.  I guess we'll get to see how our new shingles hold up!  But it's definitely not going to be good weather for putting siding on the house - no matter how anxious I am to see it all finished.

It's batten down the hatches and hunker down type of weather.  Put away the deck furniture, secure all loose items, be glad the christmas decorations aren't up yet kind of weather.  They say people could lose power, mostly because of tree branches on power lines.  At least we won't have to worry about that, since there aren't too many trees left around here.

And, yes, even though we had our share of severe weather here this summer, I still think it's ridiculous that our local news station thinks they need to be on the air by 4:30 in the morning.  What are they going to do?  Tell people it's windy because they can't figure it out for themselves?
