The storms must have come through yesterday. I know because of the "driving" rain for my whole 5-hour trip home. It was soupy and hot yesterday in NY—nice to come back to the AC in NJ—it's pretty soupy here too.
I decided to leave when I found out that everything happening to the house from now through Monday or Tuesday, will take place down in the basement, where I can't see anything. I could, if I was a real photographer, but I would have to walk the plank, balance on the scaffolding, and/or go down the ladder. I think I will wait until the floor gets started and the "moat" backfilled before I venture inside for my next photo shoot.
