Storms to Stop by Weekend

The workshop now full of mud again.

Although there was rain in the canyon yesterday, there was no noticeable difference in the mud. We were able to do more work behind the Buddha Hall with sandbags and trenching by hand and with the backhoe. Today the storm clouds formed again, but with much less menace than the past few days. There is still a chance of storms through Thursday, but now the forecast for Friday, Saturday and Sunday is clear. It seems the storm system may be fading out, so hopefully we may not incur any more substantial damage this week.

Instead of posting daily, I will just post when there is news. The last couple of days have been relatively uneventful and hopefully this will continue through the week.
