There's been a slight delay in the garage-building; the guys didn't receive all the proper metal sheets, so they'll be back Thursday and be finished by Friday. They're doing a fine job, and have been moving right along.
This morning I sat down and started calling every electrician in the local phone book. Finally I got a real person, and he said either he or one of his men would be here sometime today to look our situation over. Now it's 3:30 and I haven't seen anybody yet, but that's the best promise I've had so far. We shall see.
If he doesn't show, perhaps tonight I'll get some return calls from all the messages I left in voice mail for electrical contractors this morning.
