I recently built a floor with brand new 3/4in pressure treated plywood from home depot for a plastic modular shed....within a week the shed was covered in mold inside. It started on the floor but is now getting all over my lawn equipment and gas cans. At first I thought the shed did not have enough ventilation, but now I am wondering otherwise.

State parks

Hey Gino here, just wondering if anyone else is pretty annoyed about how unkept deer park is? The road going to the main parking lot is absolutely destroyed. I didn't know I was going on a roller coaster ride when I simply wanted to get to the parking lot. I could barely drive my car down it. Once you enter the main Parking lot, the second road is in no way able for a vehicle to drive down it that does not have 4 wheel drive. I guess I learned that one the hard way. It just doesn't make sense... More

Belvidere Victorian Days Cancelled this year

Got a message from the committee that runs Victorian Days letting me know the event has been cancelled this year. Not enough houses could be secured for tours or teas causing a financial issue. The car show will still happen at the park on Saturday only.
I found out a couple of weeks ago, but hesitated on posting an announcement here hoping that funding could be found from other sources. That has not happened as of yet. Hopefully this event can return in 2018. More info can be found on their website or Facebook page
