Rainy day in Oklahoma

I laid the soles on this pair of boots today, stitched them, and the next job is pegging the soles. But it’s a wet and rainy day and the soles aren’t drying at their normal pace. They’re still far too damp for pegging, but they’d be too dry tomorrow if I left them out, so I’ve placed them in a semi-open bag for the night. They should be at the perfect stage in the morning.
