A strong west wind did not deter a pair of workers who were on a roof in Palmyra Thursday morning.


The workers were part of a team of construction personnel that is building one of two new homes in a subdivision on the community’s south side. Another two-person team was visible working closer to ground level.


The construction team was taking advantage of sunny and dry conditions to make headway during the week between winter holidays.


Thursday’s wind was blowing at from 17 to 25 mph, with gusts peaking at 37 mph.


Despite the fact the temperature was in the mid 40s, the wind made it feel like it was only in the 30s.
