Normal

On the house front, the weather would seem to be changing to “normal” (rain), which should allow us to figure out where the “normal” gets in (to the house).
Normal is not coming through the hole in the wall.
Normal is not coming up through the hole in the floor.

Normal appears to be coming in through a series of seeps along the west wall.

This is just the starting point of figuring.
One of my tasks is to clean up the current state of work so we can see detail.
There is too much dust, dirt and little bits of wood to have a really clear look.
And the pieces of floor structure that are stacked against the west wall. (This is the real deterrent.)
[The picture was taken looking into the dark behind the stacked floor pieces. Nice work by the flash.]

Work has continued to be work, with a vengeance.
I don’t mind the work, I just want to get it done.

I did stumble across this job announcement. I am not quite qualified, but boy … one of those that made me pause.

Carl’s work has been taking him hither and yon, and then taking naps (which also allows Carl’s battery to recharge).
And he is apparently managing to mix our yoga class in with his work.

Today we took a break and went to the Mariner Fan Fest. They are doing a lot of reconfiguration work this off-season. I was almost more interested in that aspect than the ball players.

A few hundred were removed to make room for an Edgar Martinez restaurant.
But the real reason was to move in the fences a bit.

Since the fences were moving, they were not in place to hit Home Runs over (off of tees).
But they did add a zip line.

Carl had to get his hitting in at the “Felix” cage. He did pretty well, putting the bat on every pitch (a few were pop ups).
You can not see it in this fuzzy picture, but the white screen shows a video of Felix pitching, and when he releases the ball it flies out of the hole in the screen.

And we will now have the biggest d*** video screen you have ever seen.

It is not quite done, but they are putting up the supports.
It is behind us, so we will not be looking at it all the time.
(Wonder if they use molly bolts to hold up their pictures?)

The rest of the week has been spent working on taxes.
And now filing, and more cleaning …

In other words – life is normal.

    I hate water leaks and the damage they do. It’s so very sneaky about how it gets IN. 😦
