I had a day off on Wednesday, so I ventured out to rescue the birdfeeder. I have had to straighten it in the photos so it didn't look so crooked when it really was sagging and falling apart. I found a couple of thin pieces of wood and put bracing on the box so it wouldn't sag anymore. I had done just one side and squared it up and then notice from the other direction it made it sag worse in that other direction. Putting another brace on the feeder on the other side the did squared it up. I had built it with recycle things and I put some finishing nails in the project. The finishing nails don't weather and start to rust away letting the board jiggle back and forth. I added some very large nails on the corners and things look like it might make a couple of more years. The slats will give the birds an obstacle course to fly through now but they do that all the time with branches in the trees.
We will venture for groceries in order to be stocked up for the winter storm we are to have. Severe cold can be considered a storm as it blankets temperatures of 9 degrees F. or less all over the area. I am always concerned about the utilities and hope they can stay on during the time. Happy Friday to you all and thanks for coming by today.
