I am canceling the dig today. After the torrential rain yesterday afternoon AND very early this morning (scary storm!), the site is way too waterlogged to finish digging our last unit. The final tasks we have need dry weather! We had a great dry afternoon yesterday, but no such luck today. Even washed artifacts will not dry.
I'll go and bail things out a bit later today.
The good news is that tomorrow - our Open House Day - looks like no rain! Come see our fabulous finds and marvel and what we have accomplished through your dedication and hard work! Plus, we'll be working to finish digging, recording, and washing artifacts as much as is possible.
