Worked on the patio this afternoon. It’s progressing nicely, although it will look more impressive once we clean the sand off!

Jen

+1 w/Travis. Great that the building is getting some attention. May I suggest three or four thermometers with big visible readouts that you can see from a central point and a little notebook and pencil? <g> Acquiring an IR thermometer one way or another might also pay off because it would let you read (and record) all the wall, ceiling and floor temps very quickly and easily. Maybe Travis can suggest a way to source a wind gauge? One that reads from _inside_ would, of course be nice. But there's small hand held ones that work quite well - just you have to put your body out there to get the reading...


Cheers,
Rufus

Might a cellphone be able to monitor wind? if mine weren't broken I would look for an app for "weather station" or something.  They're able to do lots of things you might not expect a phone to be able to do.  (Except make phone calls, apparently.)

Thanks for taking us along... very exciting!   And the 'oregon grape' photo is stunning, IMO : )   (The others are great also.... especially love the flowers and the varieties of  'fauna' : )

More work at the Abbey this morning. I am really enjoying camping on the Lab and hanging out with Cloud.
