Paradise ponders...

Paradise ponders...  We woke up to a couple more inches of snow this morning.  In the photos below, note particularly the size of the pile of snow that fell off the barn's roof (the pile off the house is even bigger!):

I took those just before I went into the barn to start painting the trailer sides.  Here's what it looked like before and after I got the first coat of primer on:

That's 90 minutes worth of painting there, because I used a brush.  It's going to take a total of 6 steps to paint these, because I have to paint each side with one coat of primer and two top coats.  It works best, I've learned, if I flip the pieces in between each coat – but that means I have to wait longer between coats, so that the coat I just did is hard enough to stand up to resting on the rails.  I'm going to try priming the second side later this afternoon; we'll see if that was a bright move a bit later :)
