Will the garage have a tower to support a lightning rod, for Frankie's jumper cables?

It's 20F this morning...yuck

I need to backfill this weekend but I'm trying to hand A trench for plumbing first...because I'm too cheap to rent an excavator for a 20 feet of digging.....we have a lot of rock and what's not rock is clay, digging is slow going....and it's 20F this morning.

Yeah...its not supposed to he 20 this time of year, but a heated floor will make it more pleasant.

I got the trench dug...maybe best I dug by hand since the propane line and gutter drain are still in tact this way. I rented a hammer drill last night and put some holes in the house foundation (s*ck job), today I'll see if the air hammer can turn the little holes into 1 big hole.

The ground is mostly filled in...I'll make it nicer once the pipes are in.
