Happily today is much warmer. Plenty of sun shine to charge the batteries. (Used quite a bit of their capacity last night with the space heater. I'm holding off as long as possible with starting a first fire for the year. ) Should get up to 70 or so.
Took yesterday off. I wasn't feeling building a fence with such temps and overcast. Project for today involves painting the bottom 2ft worth of the cedar 6x6 posts that will be buried in the ground. Preventing a bit of rot over the long run. They are cedar, so should fair well already, but doesn't hurt to give it a boost. If I had access to a bit of Roof Tar, I would use that, but at the moment, on hand it is a 5 gallon pale of thick Behr paint. Angle cut the tops of the posts to shed water. Square. Plumb. Get the heights all leveled out amongst themselves. Then attach the 2x8 cedar boards at either 3 or 4 ft between each post.
Here is a video of what I managed to accomplish on the 10th :
