The Last of the Hurricane Ties

Day #119

May 9, 2020 – This morning I left the house at 6:30 AM. I arrived at the cottage at 8:20 AM with no clear plan of what I wanted to accomplish. Taking the easy road, I decided to complete the last of the hurricane ties.

For some reason I didn’t take any pictures of the hurricane tie installation (pictures) but I got a few of the May Snow Storm that I experienced.

While it was snowing I ate a lunch of canned Brunswick Sardines and some fresh Blueberries in my truck. I really like the no salt sardines in spring water. I managed to catch a Northern Flicker poking around for bugs in the yard.

I wasn’t sure that I would have enough of the hurricane ties to finish but I did.

Before leaving for home I moved the pile of scrap lumber I had sitting in the front yard and raked up the leaves.

My heart wasn’t in it today so I packed up and left for home at 2:51 PM. We’ll see ya next weekend.
