Last Tuesday, we experienced our first rain delay. When we felt the first few drops of water, I was perched on top of the roof nailing plywood to the rafters (see Emma’s post Up to Greater Heights about the whole process of roofing). At first, I thought the tree that we are building the house under would shelter me from the rain, but then it started pouring. I slowly (since I was on a slanted roof) scurried down the ladder and under the shelter. While I was trying to remove myself from the roof and the rain, the rest of my team made sure to bring all the tools (like the nail gun) underneath the shelter.
After all of this commotion, the rain stopped five minutes later.
We assumed our previous positions and continued to work for the next hour!
A little water cannot stop us!
