In the above, it seems galvanization is making its case for longevity. The out-of-place nail is eaten up with rust. Only remnants of the original cloth bag from which these nails were carried out from the hardware store with remains.
A bit of a nerve-wracking night tonight as the storm that put tornadoes on the ground in Dallas this afternoon moved into our area early this evening. Storms usually don’t bother me having sat out several hurricanes in my life. But it changes dramatically when you got kids in the house, especially when a ripsnorter of a storm like tonight comes blowing through. Thankfully, no tornadoes spawned. We did take a pretty rough pelting by some hail that was about 2-3cm in diameter.
