Our thanks to those who were willing to take and share some pictures and to those who willingly took our camera and took pictures as well. And, of course, many thanks to all of you who came and helped. We realize that it didn't always seem like you were doing much. But, your presence was critical to make sure the plastic stayed where it was supposed to stay. The results were fantastic.
|Bandsaw Man, the superhero - at it again!|
There were a few brace bands that needed to go on prior to the plastic being pulled, but after that, we were ready to go.
|the plastic is spread out on the North side, read to pull.|
|Look carefully, do you see Tammy?|
|Who knew this could be fun?|
Well, there you go.
You might notice the picture on the right. If you look VERY carefully, you can find Farmer Tammy. It might help if you click on the picture to enlarge it.
People on the ground kept the plastic on the North and South from lifting up and the people on the peaks worked to pull the plastic as tight as we could get it. Once we felt it was tight enough, we put wiggle wire in to hold both peaks. We followed that with putting some wiggle wire on the hip boards in the middle. Then we worked towards the corners, trying to get rid of any wrinkles as we went.
|What's wiggle wire? That's wiggle wire!|
After we all decided wiggle wire is cool - if slightly dangerous for the eyes if you aren't paying attention (no, no one was hurt) - we herded everyone together for a picture.
|Even Inspector got into the picture.|
