Brrring it on

Front window on the Stone Bank in Bottineau, ND

It was 3 below this morning in Bottineau, N.D. At this hour it’s 0 degrees. With wintry weather upon us, it’s amazing that our stone mason says he is ready to go tomorrow (Friday, Nov. 18) on removing stones from the back of the building. (But with some of the stones weighing in at 300 pounds, I guess he will stay warm.) It’s time for this — and it’s the best way to fix what’s wrong the building’s substructure.

We have the money to do this work, but we’ll need your support to help rebuild it. Hit the “donate now” button on http://www.StoneBank.org. Or buy one of our cool T-shirts — all profits go to the Stone Bank project.

And watch the progress as the back of the building comes down. We’ll post daily updates. Joe, the stone mason said it will take him less than two weeks to get ‘er done.
