We got back from the holiday yesterday in the middle of a snow storm which lasted into today. While the total was only about five inches, the wind that accompanied it was fierce.

Fortunately, I was in the garage most of the day once I got the drive plowed. I was starting to set up for running the electric. The large junction box where the two main lines coming to the house join before going out again to separate main breakers, arrived while we were gone. I have to cut four 2" holes in it to run the conduit. I got one done before the hole saw crapped out. Went and got a new one, but it didn't even get a hole cut before it was dull! The picture on the package shows it cutting a steel I-beam, and it can't cut through a thin junction box?! Took it back. I'll try using a jigsaw on it instead.

The core drill and long chisel arrived late morning. Fantastic! Went back up and went to work hammer drilling two 2 5/8" holes through the 12" of concrete and the stone that we had already run on the outside. Took about a half-hour per hole, drilling for an inch or two, and then using the pointed chisel to break off the core, clean it out and start all over. Drilled a few small holes across the area first to reduce the chances of hitting rebar with the core drill. All went well. Set the two breaker panels before calling it quits. Need to get those holes put in the junction box, and try to see how best to set that. Was going to place it on the outside, but am now thinking of the inside if I can make it fit. Less stuff on the front of the house.

French doors are supposed to be delivered on Wednesday. With all the snow, I'm afraid we are going to have to shuttle them up on the trailer. I'm sure he won't have four-wheel drive. And I don't expect the roofer for a few days at least!
