Wednesday, March 16, 2011

The rain finally let up today, so we went back to the house in Hanover where last week, we had started to waterproof the new foundation.  Unfortunately even though there wasn't any rain to speak of, it was a rather cold day.  With a large group of students armed with brushes we were able to second coat most of the foundation.  This is the house that this summer we replaced the floors in.  It is now 5 feet off the ground so it should remain safe and dry even with another flood.

The remaining students spent their day being entertained by the kids at the Maben Head Start. It is always fun to hear the stories from the day.  Kid's say the darnedest things...

In preparation for tomorrows work with the Upper Guyandotte Watershed Association, Val from UGWA came to speak with the students about the environmental issues that affect the area, what organizations such as UGWA do and prep them for tomorrow's work.
