You can see there is a floor (main floor) or ceiling (basement) depending on your perspective.  The view from the main floor is pretty dang good and the construction crew has framed in the basement rooms.  Thanks, Todd!  Things are looking good and solid.  Dave and Todd were walking on the main floor and Todd started jumping up and down to show how solid the floor is, then Dave started jumping up and down and I had to yell at both of them, “Not in the house!!!”  Ha ha.

We spent the day splitting wood and stacking it to prepare for the winter.  The farmer’s almanac is predicting the following:

“Annual Weather Summary: November 2016 to October 2017

Winter will be colder than normal in the north, warmer in the south. The coldest periods will be in early and late December and early and mid- to late January. Precipitation will be slightly above normal in the north and below normal in the south. Snowfall will be above normal in the north and below normal elsewhere, with the snowiest periods in late November, mid- to late December, and mid- to late February.”

We figure we better get some wood together while the weather is nice, and the weather is NICE!!!
