We woke up this morning with no heat. Over the last two weeks we have had sewage back up into the laundry room from the drain in the floor five times that ruined the basement rec room ceiling and floor (plumbers think they have finally found the problem), a front storm door that blew off during move-in, no phone service or mail for the first week (even though these were taken care of before the move), a dryer that won't work properly (the repairman after two visits says he has pinpointed the problem, and it will be fixed this week), a fireplace with a damper that's broken. We have had some repair person here every day since we moved in. I don't think I will ever buy an old house again.
But we are thankful we did not get the snowstorm the northeast got last weekend or this weekend. And I am glad to see ten hours of daylight that we get after January 25th. Some bulbs I planted in November are poking through the soil. Here are photos of some of the tulips I planted in the back yard garden.
