There was some rescheduling (repeatedly) on the whole gutter thing, but today they showed up.
It's bizarro world here at the O.-A. residence: the generator is providing our power, we have wireless connectivity, we even have fresh video inbound because I increased my Netflix subscription to make up for the lake of cable and thus the reduced number of NCIS episodes. We have cell phones and land lines.
If I trusted that generator more, and was willing to give up the Rachel Maddow Show, the Daily Show and the Colbert Report (well, I guess I could watch them on line, but it would be hideously slow over the cell connection), we could do this indefinitely.
If, if, if.
I _like_ my dependence on the grid, thank you very much. Please give it back. Soon.
I am, however, quite pleased about the gutters.
Oh, and there's white stuff on the ground. Don't know if I mentioned that.
