Between snowstorms. $500 match on offer. Shares needed.

That was the parapet early yesterday. By this morning, it was about a foot deep. Now, it's back to about that level, given that the mercury hit forty today.  The next storm is supposed to hit tomorrow night.

This may be my last of these posts until the first of the year — or maybe not. There's currently a $500 match on offer, and so I may, if time permits, continue to post these . . . but other than Ice with the interior plasterwork, the crew is off until January 2nd. We need the break; maybe I'll finally, finally be able to shake this bug. Besides, it's the holidays, and there's another fundraiser that needs people's attention much more urgently at the moment.

For now, I'm just going to cut and past again and call it good. Tomorrow will be extraordinarily busy, and I still have work to do tonight. Herewith, the links:
  • Shares of our YouCaring page via the widgets provided, especially the widget code, which has once again been moved back to the purple box at the lower right-hand side of the page, that produces the image shown above.
  • Shares of Wings's site; sales are way, way down this holiday season, and this is the time of year that usually gets us (mostly) through the long harsh winters. This year, it's also funding construction. Testimonials help.
  • If you're considering commissioning holiday gifts by Wings, now's the time to contact me so I can get your order into his workbench queue. We're about out of time for this one, at least those that involve shipping across the country. 
  • One last thing: I mentioned above that the plumbers are coming, and bathroom-fixture purchases are in the offing. To that end, I've added Lowes gift cards to our Amazon wishlist. No, there's no Lowes here in Taos, but there's one an hour-plus away in EspaƱola. Less obnoxious (and less expensive, and less far away) than Home Depot, and an actual selection and discount pricing that are not available here in town. It's by far the most cost-efficient way for us to buy the bathroom fixtures, which we're going to have to do very soon so that they can complete the plumbing rough-in and our crew can get to those rooms.
Thanks to everyone for your help thus far. Special thanks to one dear friend who is keeping me from losing what remains of my sanity; I can't believe you did this. Still, we are going to need to push through this, hard, fast, and and consistently. Winter is here: Snow, ice, bitter cold, and a septic system that freezes nightly because it was misinstalled all those years ago. Blowing snow, brutal winds, and lots of ice yesterday; supposed to be seven below tonight. Please give us a hand with consistent daily shares to a wide audience.
