So it snowed. It was warm enough though that it melted off pretty good. Fargo had a power outage for a half hour or so today and during that time at work we went to the windows to see the snow. One of my coworkers lived in Florida until this winter and she had never seen snow. Everyone thought she was so cute.
A video and some pictures from painting the barn!
It has just been Jake and I the last few days. Today we also painted another small building on the property, and finished painting Pastor Scheving’s garage.
The video here is at 4000% speed- I think the clouds look very neat in it!
Myself, Jake, and Dustin worked 8 1/2 hours at a fireworks warehouse yesterday. Bro. Dean Shearer from Fargo Baptist invited us to come and work unloading and transporting boxes of fireworks. Memory Fireworks is a large multi-store company in North Dakota and Minnesota. This warehouse services nine other stores. First off, we had to rearrange boxes of fireworks in the warehouse. There were several pallets of firework boxes that needed to be combined on pallets in the other side of the warehouse. We worked alongside of Jesse and Jordan Shearer, who told us the way that things should be organized. Jordan also used the pallet loader to move loaded pallets around. Another worker named Norm soon arrived to help as well.
As soon as that job was finished, we waited for the Semi to arrive. Soon it came, loaded to the brim with boxes of fireworks. First the bolts had to be cut with a bolt cutter, then the doors opened. When the door was opened, there was a large wooden contraption that had to be sawed away to get at the contents. Then was the real work. At first just I was in the truck, handing down boxes. Then there was room for Jesse, then Dustin, and soon Jake too. Norm and Jordan helped by putting certain fireworks boxes on pallets, and Jordan also used the pallet loader to lift pallets up so we could fill them, and then move them away.
We stopped to break at lunch time, delicious pizza, and water never tasted so good either. I also grabbed some green tea with citrus from my car that we had bought for our barn painting job. Soon we were back inside, moving boxes from the semi to the area around us.

I was glad that I went to Saver’s and got a long sleeve shirt after today. Painting was cold! There was a good breeze today and the temperature was in the 50’s. The nice thing about a long sleeve shirt is you don’t end up being so covered in paint when you’re done. Just Jake and I went painting today, the others had some laundry to do. Jake and I moved the scaffolding and the hay wagon all by ourselves and maneuvered it into another place at the barn. The sunshine came off and on, so we did have relief.
Over all it was another fun day, and we got a lot of painting done!
Classes have been going well, job search is still on. I did get my cell phone in the mail today. My cell phone number (on which I have unlimited talk/text/web is (701)-200-55<four>7 (the strange four is to keep from getting spammy texts) Been doing some random driving around Fargo and Moorhead, MN, just to find new places. I drive without a map, and get in all kinds of places, and go back by a different route. I always seem to get back just fine when i keep heading in the right direction.
