Thank you, Mother Nature.

Sometimes, you don’t know whether you’re coming or going. Other times, you take a chance, and get things done. This is one of those times.

Niagara Falls

It’s Labour Day Weekend, and we have just returned from a few days at Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls, Canada. After a beautiful time away, I wanted to get some work done on the arcade. It wasn’t looking too good. The Weather Network was calling for a 40% chance of rain on Friday and Saturday, a 100% chance of thunderstorms on Sunday and back to a 40% chance of rain on Holiday Monday.

So, Friday and Saturday saw no rain. That was amazing, and I got a lot completed. Today was Sunday, and when I woke up, I was prepared for the worst. I checked The Weather Network’s website, and sure enough, there was a Thunderstorm Warning for our area, and they still reported a 100% chance of rain. I watched the skies. They were grey and ominous, but early this morning, there still had not been any rain…

Weather, Weather everywhere...

I worked quickly, and managed to complete all of the cuts and carves for the marquee. There were a few spots where the router dipped into the wood – where I didn’t want it to happen – but I knew that was going to happen. I have wood filler and Bondo for that, no worries there. All the while, I kept my one eye on the weather. Dark clouds floated in and out, but I guess Mother Nature was watching out for me. I completed the marquee, and put some wood filler into some spots, and now, I’m ready for my last day of Vacation – Labour Day…

That’s tomorrow. I hope to apply some Bondo to the marquee, complete the sanding, and if all goes well, apply a coat or two of primer. If the weather continues to hold out, you’ll definitely see some pictures!

I can’t wait. Is it Monday yet?
