Report of workday

Gene Barron, Mark Mathison, Kim Vaughn and I met at Redland on Saturday January the 10th. Gene and Mark piled up some limbs/debris before I arrived. We were able to get most of the window panes installed. There were 4 that would not fit because the window sashs are evidently out of square. Even though the measurements were OK, they would not fit because one corner wouldn't go in no matter how you turned them. There are still the few that have some imperfection (crack, hole, etc.) that eventually need to be replaced.
