Observatory--continued...



I began work out at the observatory site today.  This is the frame for the building with the moisture barrier.  The wind was pretty strong and the moisture barrier was blowing around. I'll wait until the floor is secured before I finalize its installation.  It was a real example of Murphy's Law that work had to abandoned due to thunder and lightning after weeks of dry weather.  The storm, however, brought no rain but I had to leave the site--being without shelter on the nighest point in the county was not the safest place to be during a thunderstorm!  The ground is rather stony and it proved impossible to get the earth anchors in place.  I'll try again tomorrow, weather and schedule permitting.
