A day Building…Raining and no power day

Today we lost power about 5:45am and at 6:20pm we still don’t have power so it will be quick update. It was also raining when we woke up.  So no cement was poured today but we got all the rebar and forms ready for tomorrow.  We hope to be making and pouring cement most of the day.  We will try and document with pictures.  It was on and off rain most of the day.  Besides getting the rebar ready we move a lot of sand/gravel mix and rocks for tomorrow.   Pray that we have a dry day tomorrow, we could use it for the work that is before us.
As I was typing this the power came back on. So we are charging all the devices and phones.
