Rain, rain, go away...

They say April showers bring May flowers, but whoever 'they' are they haven't been watching the weather channel.  Unlike last year, where Lake Lanier dried into a puddle, this year we seem to be having the opposite of a drought.  Continual rain started in March, filling the cracks (a standard 1/8 " between plywood) of our newly minted subfloor with water.  Much to our chagrin a small drip started, leaking from who-knows-where to the ground beneath our trailer.  And that was with a sheet of plastic covering the whole thing!  I sincerely wish water weren't so slippery, it really is the biggest pain.  After we built the frame we had to upgrade from a sheet of clear plastic (which obviously didn't do much) to a gigantic tarp, which I'm sure the neighbors aren't a fan of.  Admittedly, it's an eyesore.  But if all goes well the roof will be on in no time at all.
