Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It is going to be another normal winter day here with a high in the mid 30's and a low in the lower 20's. I'm freezing though. It really doesn't make sense. In the summer I set my a/c on 62 and I can sit around in my living room in shorts and be fine. In the winter I have the heat on 70 and I'm sitting here with a blanket freezing. Oh well. Not much on the agenda for today. Just more cleaning and trying to stay warm. I'm also going to move my cable modem and wireless router into my living room from my bedroom so it's easier for comcast to get to next week. So if I disappear all of a sudden, you'll know I screwed something up. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know about that, some of the weeks during the summer when it is pushing 100*F it is more depressing. At least when it is cold it still feels like Christmas.

Good morning, friends!

Brad, congrats on the snow! Good for you!

Slept in today until about 7:30 and started the coffee....came into the living room, started the fire, sit in my chair for just a second....

and off to sleep I went. Woke up an hour later....with a nice pot of hot coffee waiting on me....

Today, picking up the house and maybe taking the tree down...we are really dragging our feet on this....but oh well.....

We have city water, but Culligan thought that we were just outside of the city limits so we didn't have to follow their bylaws and what not. Well turns out we are just inside of them, so now we have to deal with the city inspector and apparently we don't have a close enough outlet in our utility room for the Soft water. So, we had to call our property manager and see if we even could install an electrical outlet box. Of course, we would have to cover the cost. She is very cool, and got the property owners to sign off on that really fast, but we have to use their electricians which is just fine with us. Luckily it's going to cost us less than $100. But what a pain in the you know what! So Culligan is still here, city inspector and electricians are coming next. Keep your fingers crossed for us that the rest of this process is painless! Thanks!

This is an example of too much government intrusion. If you had moved to Bellville, you could have installed the soft water unit wherever you wanted, and run it off an extension cord, if you wanted.
