Thanks bradd --- This will be my "retirement home"...someday.

Update on the rain. I now have four feet of it in the street outside my studios here in Houston. Just hoping the new workshop the bus is now in is on higher ground. This will be the first Houston frog drowner I have experienced in that space.

PS...the Fire Department just came and did a water rescue on someone in a car outside my building. I'm hoping it eases up soon.

The work is looking good Tango. The rain is really that bad this morning downtown? I've been watching the weather but we are not getting it on the south side. I thought we could get together this past weekend for a couple of drinks but the gods just wasn't smiling down upon us. Besides, you needed to get all this work done. I've got to see this 46 Shorty. Keep the progress and pix coming.

Roger the rainfall Phatman. So far, the flooding on my street is just short of when Ike blew through and it is still coming down. Not unusual for Houston to get in an hour three times what the whole state of Arizona gets in a year.

Looks like it will be Sunday before we see another dry day.

We had a rather heavy dew this morning.


Just outside my door. And it had gone down a few inches by the time it was light enough to get a shot. Had been up to that cars' windshield.

wow that looks like the rain we had in Dallas sunday night.. it was so bad that the hotel I was staying did a room to room walk monday morning because there were so many reports from guests of water on the floor..

they brought in a couple pallets of those blue carpet drying fans.. the DFW even closed down and caused a deluge of people checking in.. sure put my new phone system to the test!

Thanks olfart...so far so good --- Found out later there was a woman sitting in that car...in the water...in the dark...waiting for the FD to come rescue her (they did). The water was up to the bottom of the windshield but she could have taken five steps to some high ground. Must be new here. Us locals deal with a little rain like that all the time.

Got a late start today but did get on to prepping the box that will hold my water tanks.


This would be a good time to sing the praises of cold rolled steel. Even more so since I spent the better part of the day grinding scale off this old hot rolled doodad. Made it before I found a cold rolled supplier. Take my word on this...pay the extra for cold rolled. You will be glad you did.


And I still have the inside to do! This will mount onto the frame that that I just welded on top of my driver side wheel well and hold three 15 gallon tanks for fresh water.

ONWARD!
