I went to bed too early- 11PM, so I've been up since about 4 a.m. Laid in bed for an hour, then got up and have been on the computer. I can't do anything else because I don't want to wake up Ralph.
We got no snow in February, and the weather was great. March is another story! Last Friday we got some snow, just a few inches. This week we had storm Stella (cue Marlon Brando!) and it was to be a terrible northeaster. We got about half the snow the guessers called for, maybe 8 inches, with a lot of slush. I stayed in for 2 days.
We're getting connected to the county sewer system. We've had septic for almost 30 years, and it was here before we were, and it was having issues. Because we're down a little hill, the county initially didn't connect this house, but the technology has improved, and it can be done. The cost is about $20K, but cheaper than a new septic, and permanent. Definitely a factor in eventually selling. The plumber got half done, then the snowstorm. Then he got the flu, and is sick in bed. He thinks he'll be able to finish next week. We have water, which is all I care about. The big pile of dirt in the driveway keeping me from putting my car in the garage is annoying, tho.
Comcast came out and updated all our equipment yesterday. Now we have the new remotes, and can pause a show in one room, and restart it in another! And we can watch Netflix on all the TV's!
Retired life is grand!
