Spring like Storms and Advancement on Job!!

Good Morning, World!!  It has been cold, wet and windy here for the past week or so! And it is still changing from day to day. In fact, even the weathermen are having a hard time getting out the "7 day forecast" because it is seemingly changing every 12 hours! This rain today was supposed to have been done by lunchtime today, and now they are saying it will be here until tonight. The high today was supposed to be upper 70's, that will be here tomorrow. So I just sit back & watch out the window to see what it is like this hour!!  LOL

I finally dropped by that little VW shop this week to see what it would cost to get one of the VW "Things" that were on the lot....I shouldn't have....I almost fainted!! The prices for the VW's has gone thru the roof!  The most inexpensive "Things" on the lot were $8,900!  That little 'ol VW Pickup in the picture above.....well.....a month or so ago he had a guy walk in one day and offer him $25,000 for it....and he turned it down because it would bring more! My heart is broken!!  So I guess I will be looking for a mid 70's model of a Subaru Brat!  

They have really been moving along with the job here. They have been pouring concrete for sidewalks and parking areas all week. And working late nights to try to get caught up...but catching up when you're 5+ months behind is an almost impossible task! But they have about 20 or so apartments lit up trying to "condition" them so that they can finish the final details of getting they ready to turn over to the owners.

The pool guys have really been working hard at trying to  get the common area in the middle of the main building complex done. Pouring the sidewalks, patio areas and entrance/exits into the buildings.They have been here all night a couple of nights, and way into the night all the other nights.  But at this rate, they just might get done soon!

It will be nice when they do get through with it all. They also laid the tile in the pool and are coming along with the "fountain" part of the pool....I can't wait to see what it is going to look like!  They are bringing in shrubs and palm trees and are trying to make it look like a resort on the coast. Should be interesting! I'm not sure who had the task of doing decorating and furniture choice for the "clubhouse"....but I'm not very impressed. I'll try to remember to get some pics of that later and add them.

But the insides of the apartments are looking pretty good. I wandered thru a couple of them the other night and was surprised at how good they were actually looking!

 They are actually looking pretty nice. I'm not real into the "contemporary" lighting decor...or the cabinets (they are really just too dark for my tastes) but it does look fairly good!  I do like most of the plumbing fixtures they are using. The a quite nice!  :-)

The kitchen countertops are what I really like! They are all a gray marble top, well done finishes and nicely cut and edged! All the entrance doors are 8 feet, which I'm told is what comtemporary decorating is doing to give them a "classy look" for today's style....if you say so!!  Heheh!

Well, the rain just keeps coming and going each 30 minutes or so...literally! It has just started again, been about 40 minutes since the last little shower.  

And as the day wears on the green/yellow/red areas on the radar is supposed to get quite a bit larger. But I'm not complaining...these poor people have been needing raing for several years, so it is a welcome site! Now if they could just learn/remember how to drive on wet roads!! And the temperature is supposed to hit 75* today, rain moving out after midnight tonight, sunny tomorrow and the high is supposed to hit 80*!  Glad I have the A/C unit still set up!

That about covers it for today. Time to do a little house cleaning, sorting & "positioning" of "stuff"!  See you in a couple of days!
