The roof seems to be doing its job well - we went down last night after a heavy thunderstorm and found no evidence of water intrusion, despite there being large holes where patio doors are going (they'll finally be installed next week). The roof overhangs also worked well to keep the rain away from the sides of the house, although we still have issues with water pooling at the base of the slope on the west side. We'll need a permanent drain to deal with that.

Last Thursday we drove to Whitepath Water Gardens in Ellijay to pick up some grass carp to take care of the weeds in the pond. We also picked up the last batch of catfish they had (63).

Found a freshly shed snakeskin in the pond and laid it out on a plank to dry it out. It was 5 feet long and possibly belonged to one of the water snakes we'e been seeing.
