We've had a really good test for the storage building roof today thanks to a steady stream of rain. No leaks so far while we begin the process of measuring, cutting, and installing the plywood that Anna worked so hard to bring in yesterday.

I know that y'all must be old hands at electrical work by now but as a licensed electrician seeing the black and the white wires on the neutral side of a receptacle made me flinch.

Ack! the wiring doesn't look right on that receptacle....

:-) Good thing we have you all to keep us honest! Actually, last wiring we did was three years ago --- then we had a book, and this time I just figured we knew what we were doing. We'll fix it... :-)
