Snow tonight; sub-zero temps tomorrow. Shares needed.

Gonna be quick tonight. Next line of storms in the offing, after a day of rain and sleet and snow and ice and wind. It's also a night (and overnight/early morning) of markers of loss for us, so I'm not really feeling it right now.

The weather was so bad this morning that we delayed both vendor visits until Monday. We'll see what tomorrow brings, but regardless of weather (or, rather, because of it, since all the work has moved to the interior now) we're going to have to raise enough for fixtures sooner rather than later. I also still have work to do tonight. Herewith, the cut-and-paste of what we need, because I'm just too wiped out right now (and still coughing, unfortunately) to do anything original:
  • 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, with special thanks to a few folks over the last few days, and last night, who have suddenly made progress possible once again. Extra-special thanks to one dear friend and benefactor from earlier in the week, and to one from yesterday. 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. More snow is due tonight, and tomorrow night and Sunday our lows will plunge below zero here. Please give us a hand with consistent daily shares to a wide audience.

Also, for the record, I'm supporting exactly three efforts right now: Oursmy s-i-l'sLin's. Dassit. Not endorsing anything else, even if I have in the past. This is not a commentary on the worthiness of other efforts posted elsewhere, merely on what I have in the past supported here.
