If it’s any consolation, we’re getting white rain here today.

Last year the first snowfall that stuck around happened on Halloween, so good chance some of this may be staying.

Ha ha, white rain..... good one, Mark
While the rain stopped for awhile, I aired the tires up on the dump truck. I would first jack up the tire to be filled. Then air it up, fronts I brought up to 60psi, rear duals 45psi each. Not hauling anything with it, so they do not need to be at 90psi.
It is raining again. So I picked up everything and punted for the night. The forecast is for morning rain tomorrow, so maybe by the time I get home the rain will be past.

Since I started the narrative here on moving the dump truck in this thread, I will finish it here.
Yesterday was a nice day, sunny, fairly warm, and the most important thing NO RAIN

Moving the truck.
I used the Super-H to push the truck around.
  1. Pushing the truck back towards the chicken coop
  2. Another view of pushing it back.
  3. Maneuvered around, back to the south side of the shop
  4. In it's parking place.
I was going to borrow my neighbors JD5075 to move the truck with but decided to see if my tractor could do it.
Slow and steady, with a lot of hopping on and off to steer the truck. But I got it done.

I like the looks of that model of IH truck. I used to have an HO slot car with that model tow truck as a kid.

Not a lot of them left running these days. If the body was in better shape it might have been a restoration project. But it would need two doors and some other body parts to revive it.
Trying to get on red power to see if there is any interest in parts from it. I would hate to cut up the body and find out someone needed parts from it.

Went to the Amish steel roofing supply and got the first load of roofing today. The 16' panels, 5 pcs., 4 pcs. Residential rake, 2 pcs. gutter apron, 5pcs. inside closure, 5pcs. outside closure, and 250ea, 1" & 1-1/2" screws. That is roughly half of the steel roofing panels needed to do the roof. Saved almost one hundred dollars buying from them.
Still have another load to pick get next payday.
Then the 2X's, once everything is here I will start on the roof. I might strip the south side and check to see how bad it is, I might be able to screw the new purlins down to old sheeting.

Today started out with snow that has gone to rain. They say it will turn back over to snow tonight.
I was going to get the other 8' bed liner drug over to the shop today after work. But with it raining, I decided not to try and get to it.
Maybe tomorrow, I can get started on it again.
Dan.

Going to patch the worst hole on the south side of the shop roof today.
A sheet of steel and some roof patching cemet ought to do for a temporary fix.
As the north side is the worst that will allow me to do it first. Then tackle the south side. I am still debating stripping the south side and rebuilding it to bring the boiler rooms ceiling up level with the ceiling height inside the shop.

Did get a temporary patch on the worst spot on the south side of the roof on Sunday. I could not use the steel and roof cement. So I used a piece of rubber roofing, held in place with battens and screws. Should keep most of the water out when it rains.
Today, I started cleaning up the area on the north side of the shop. Not allot in there, so I got most everything moved. The last two things in there is the 4wheeler and a TJD parts engine. I need to move the parts engine into the storage building and move tbe 4wheeler to a place I can get it into the shop later this winter.
I need to see what the weather forecast is for tomorrow. If it does not call for too much snow, I will try to move the 4wheeler.
Dan.
