More of the same...
The concrete guys showed up this morning to remove the forms.
The guys doing the paver stone work are it, and we are still waiting for the refrigerator repair guys.
A different guy showed up with the part to fix the fridge. Yep, it didn't... didn't fix the fridge, that is. He pulled the thermostat and the fan started up. Our new friend, Tony the refrigerator repair guy said, "I told them I didn't think it was the fan motor."
I asked him if he had another thermostat with him... "Yes, sir. It's in the truck."
He was going to take the new fan motor out and put the old one back in. I said, "Leave it. Bill me for the thermostat. If those two things don't fix it, we'll buy a new one."
As of right now, the only noise out there is the sawing and pounding as the forms come off our new seawall cap. We had them build in a slight depression in one spot to act as a trough to let water drain better.
Speaking of water draining, there was a 50% chance of rain last night, but we only had a few sprinkles. Just 20 miles inland in Brownsville, they had between 2 and 6 inches of rain overnight. Plenty of flooding there; we dodged that.
I visited with our builder, and they will start on the dock tomorrow. He has already cut most of the composite boards, so that should move right along. The end is in sight. I am looking forward to sitting out on our deck, enjoying the peace and quiet. One of these days.
