    We locked in the synthetic stuff for the actual deck price wise months ago.
    The pickets aren’t actually that much more than normal.
    But we do need about 240 feet of 2x4’s.
    As to why now?
    Because wifey WANTS IT NOW.
    To which I say ‘yes, dear’

    It's not just lumber. Every aspect of a house has gone up. Romex copper wire has almost doubled since January and tripled since the beginning of the pandemic...and there are shortages.

    I thought building a deck this time last year was nuts. I waited 6 weeks for my lumber. Now I'm tempted to tear it up and sell the lumber for a profit....

    But seriously, now the wife and I are in need of a new vehicle. Might have to go with a lease, fucking hell...

    Why the hell would you do this knowing all the supply and price issues with lumber?

    I guess make sure the lumber package is sitting in your backyard before you demo?
    Exactly. The way supply and demand is supposed to work is price goes up, demand goes down. But when everybody has been told since infancy that they can have whatever they want when they want it--when price goes up, people want it even more.

    Truckee Safeway had diet orange soda for the first time since the pandemic started. So I guess it's over.

    I have so many questions about everyone's choices in pop after the last page and a half.

    Mr. Pibb: not cola, not root beer, not an option so long as the Dr. is around. And I'm a Coke guy too (ok, mini glass bottles at Christmastime cause they're awesome and it's a total nostalgia trip).

    Caffiene-free Diet Dr. Pepper? Personally that doesn't compute for me. My mom lived on a steady uppers and downers diet of DDP (that's Diet Dr. Pepper to the layperson) and Chardonnay to get herself through the holiday chaos of entertaining nonstop growing up. I'm not so sure what a non-caffeinated version would do for anyone.

    Orange soda, specifically Crush, should be consumed only in tall glass bottles sold from an old timey roadside market somewhere in the country, preferably by a lake or the mountains. Diet orange soda? WTF?

    And while we're on the topic, this is still the best anyone has ever worn an "I'm a Pepper" t-shirt.

    "Stephen, are you here to rescue me? I fold."

    Idk about the AZ, but they went to college together or something?
    Good to hear. I text him every once in a bit. Sounds like he is happy, which is key.
    I joke about the dark side. They are a good company. I just focus way more on the in floor stuff like floor boxes and poke throughs and tray and duct.
    They just aren't a player in any of that. WM is my main competition.

    Why are you keeping it around long enough UV matters? It doesn’t age well.

    I find High Life is best stored in ice or in your stomach.

    YMMV.

    Shit, I had an Aunt who drank Scotch and Fresca. And not cheap scotch either.

    When I lived in Mass. eons ago it was Tonic.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.
