Wish me luck, if we make it 24 hours without rain my slab will be done.

Concrete guys were just here doing a final check, trucks scheduled for 2:00 PM tomorrow, I just need no rain for the next 24 hours.
This has been a want to do project for the last 16 years we have lived here. Real planning and moving forward to actually doing something has been for the last 5 months, 3 of which were waiting for my contractor to get caught up to where I am on top of the list. Lately it has been the rain holding up progress, I know it sounds odd from Texas but I need a no rain prayer for just 24 hours!

    Good luck, it's raining here right now. I assume it is the picture that it looks like it slopes a lot.

    Just a little, about 10" drop from one side to the other.

    Oooooooo! I like that.
    Hang some skins on the walls, hide a cot in the back, a little fridge, small stove, the smell of Hoppes, lithium grease, bacon, and coffee.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    We have been pouring lots and lots... and lots of sidewalks in Detroit and have found that if we get them to the point where we can broom them, it can rain 2 hours later and we are ok.

    Don't forget the hand print or foot print and the date, we also stick some bottle caps or brass in when we pour too.

    Naw, I'll keep that in the house closer to the armory!

    Slab poured today, got about a week off before they start on the building.
