I'm writing a little note on the wall before it gets covered up. I wonder if anybody will ever see it. Sort of my own little stikman.
It took me a few seconds to figure out the what this picture is of. It's looking up at the joists holding up the second floor. The cinder block is the outside wall, and now there is expanding foam in the cracks. Another route for cold air blocked.
We had vintage (i.e. old and ugly) hot air registers. Gone now, and the hot air vent will be placed in the wood floor.
We're watching the weather forecasts and it looks like Hurricane Irene is going to give us some big winds and heavy rains. Going grocery shopping tonight because by tomorrow the stores will be jammed and the shelves empty. At least I already have toilet paper. Gee, an earthquake and a hurricane all in one week. Is somebody sending a message?
