Scow flip delayed again
The weather continues to be bad here with temperatures 15C below normal averages for this time of year. We continue to have snow flurries, rain, sleet and subzero temperatures, sometimes with a brisk north wind. Perry needs to do some last minute gluing on the bottom of the scow and needs temperatures above zero to do this properly or the glue won't cure. Also it is difficult to get enough people lined up to help, especially as this is a holiday Thanksgiving weekend. When I mentioned the problem getting everyone organized to be around to help flip the scow sections, a co-worker pointed out that arranging everyone to be at the scow construction site on the same day was "Like herding cats". How true. Check back from time to time to see how the progress is coming. We definately need some warmer weather!
