2015 Porch Correction and Cosmic Protection

The brute winter that just passed set its foot down on my porch and crushed it. I had plans to tune up the mortar work and such but it now went beyond a bit of chinking and plugging with mortar. We were required to tear up the entire surface as the mortar had vaporized into sand. Without boring you on materials and procedures, three days later we ended up with a bit nicer surface. It looks and feels solid but we will have to wait a few years to see how it all holds up. Inscribed cosmic protection finished the job.



Chinking out all mortar on first step produced this…yikes! There goes my Friday.
