real dry here the last month+ so of course got 6" in some spots last night and 10" further to the east. Never an inch at a time. More tonight. Yippie! :lol: Beats plant/root rot though (dry weather).

Everything is so damp, this is the first year I haven't been able to close the back door because the wood of the door and jam have swelled so much. If it doesn't dry soon, I might have to pull it and plane down the edges.

I wonder if I can get my taxes reduced now that my back yard can be classed as wet lands ? :D

If only! More likely to raise them because you have a dock(back steps) and swimming pool!!
So I was on my way to work and walked past a thing I read about that helps with a weaker draft that I thought was really, really cool. Its was a spinning chimney cap so I knocked just to be sure they were getting rid of it not about to install it and she said pick it up after work and I forgot but went the next day and will put in on the shorter summer kitchen stack

Aha! Glad to hear it. Not that I actually had trouble, but I know its the minimum height. What a brilliant invention. Some guy on this site says, " If it were any more simple it wouldn't work"
We were down to eight degrees at night for a while and I did start the range one morning to take the chill off.
Supposed to be a terrible winter. Many in town are insulating extra and filling holes. I had better also while its nice.
