Wednesday 4-29 Rain Storm

Having fun in the rain

We were awakened at 3:30 this morning with thunder and very heavy rain. Last month I wrote that Larry installed a solar attic fan and it works good. The first rain storm we had it leaked a little through the cord from the solar panel so he sealed that up. This morning when the rain came through Larry crawled out of bed and went into the attic to check the fan for leaks. It was a violent storm and the rain was actually blowing back up inside the fan and dripping. He used some buckets and towels to keep the water from dripping onto the insulation and ceiling. Apparently the design leaves something to be desired. He sees no way to fix the fan so he ordered a different vent and will replace it. 

During the day I worked on my daily challenges and The Event: Two Game Tango 10 games of Free Cell and 10 games of Pyramid. It took me 1 hour, 19 minutes and 25 seconds. I came in 7th place in my group. I spent most of the day reading.

When our house was being built we had an irrigation system installed, unfortunately they put some of the heads on our neighbor lots on both sides. Last year Larry relocated a couple of heads from the lot north of us. Today Larry had a surveyor come out and find/replace our property markers so he could fix the ones on the south side. The temperature was in the high 60's, it was perfect to start relocating those heads. After lunch Larry went outside and stretched a line along the property boundary and dug up two sprinkler heads that needed to be moved off the neighbors lot. Then he decided what parts he needed.

He didn't have all the parts he needed so he ordered them via The Home Depot website. The Home Depot in Temple now has curbside deliver. When the order was ready we went to pick it up. We didn't have to go inside the store because we used the curbside service. We called the service desk and they delivered the parts to our car. It worked perfect.

In the evening we watched a few episodes of Eureka and I watched a few episodes of Chuck. We had a great day.
