Calliope Girl 25


Following an early meeting, I had just gotten to the shop when the power went out, victim of the day’s strong winds and heavy rain.  Though this had been a threat, I’d not expected it to happen so early, but there was nothing for it but to wait it out.  In the meantime, I continued working on some figuring to determine how much hardwood (teak) to order for the new cabin trim and some other planning for the work ahead.

The damage to the grid from the windstorm appeared severe from reports through the afternoon, so it seemed likely that the power might remain out for several days, which would cause a frustrating and unplanned delay.
