SHERMAN, Texas -- Rainy weather and construction projects are like oil and water.

And wet weather has taken its toll on one of the biggest projects in Grayson County: The new Sherman High School.

The district broke ground nearly a year ago, and workers are pouring slabs, raising steel beams and working day-in day-out to make sure this job gets done in time.

But contractors say nearly 61 inches of rain since then has already put them nearly two months behind.

The Sherman school board got a progress report on the high school construction at Monday night's meeting. Workers are now arriving as early as 6 a.m. and staying as late as they need to get back on track.

In the coming months, the site is going to see more vertical construction, framing and exterior skin -- bringing the new home of the Bearcats closer to completion.
