It was another hot one featuring a thunder and lightening show at lunch time. I was soaking wet most of the day, initially from sweat, and finally from rain. I spent the entire day in the sun working on decking and stringers. Chris and Christina (Mets and Yankee fans) did terrific work on fitting the decking onto a deck built by someone else. Noah was a god with the drill. Barbara was steadfast, as usual, a ray of hope on a cloudy day.
After work we visited the Lower 9th Ward. This area received the most devastation from Katrina. There is no way that I can describe how horrific it still looks, so I will not try.
Tomorrow I will finish the side stairs. Tonight I am looking for lots of sleep!
