The walls go up

A week after the crane was erected over this property, a basic tilt-wall four story structure now stands. This looks to be another multi-storied garage, similar to the ones erected just down the street for the Stirling housing. One finished it becomes the anchor for the rest of the apartments, which are built using more conventional techniques and materials, primarily wood.

Unleaded regular gas is now $3.39/gallon, up two cents from yesterday, up ten cents from Saturday. If the unrest keeps up in the middle East, at this rate it'll hit $3.50/gallon by the coming weekend.

The temperature changed drastically today. We haven't had any rain in central Florida for all of February, but early this morning a front came through with some locally heavy showers. It rained through most of the morning, stopping around 11am. This  evening, I had to put on a light jacket to take the Labs out for their evening walk. It's in the mid-60's right now, with a forecast low of 57. Yesterday, and for the last half of February, the temperatures were in the mid-80's during the day, and the mid-60's at night. The cooler weather is welcome, but it's a bit odd to feel it switching around like this. March is supposed to be the month where the weather is "in like a lion, out like a lamb."
