Load of boxes made it into house; included pots for plants, a few of which were helpful already. Bro sent photo of dining set at thrift shop that R likes. We went in truck to pick up a sofa I loved and took it out to "Dupont", for lack of more creative name. Went a long way round so R had to get to work and I went to look at DR set, purchased it and R will pick up before Tuesday. Tomorrow mattress will arrive - roads willing! I phoned Geri and got phone number of a friend who lives near Dupont (the street name). This friend told us a friend of hers lives across the street. So, I will phone her tonight to see if the cross-the-street-neighbour could receive the mattress for us if the roads are terrible! They already clear the snow for us! R has met them but I have not.
I "cancelled today" and have done only computer and TV. We were asked to stay home/off the streets if at all possible. R cleared our front steps and vehicles and went off to work.
This storm is being compared to the one in 1971 but I was here for that. Two of us made it to class; I walked and the other skied over the mountain; the prof did not show. Snowmobiles were taking people to emergencies... Not the same!! Yet.
One of my frustrations is that I cannot stay awake much after 9 pm; most music starts at 9 or later so I was delighted to find today that the Wheel Club is having a jam on Saturday night starting at 7!! It is under new supervision so maybe I have hopes of more. I only found out because an unknown (I think) person asked to "Friend" me and I found him to be a Wheel Club person with good info posted, and two mutuals. I always check!
Once the frig is moved from the mill - I would be happy not to have to go there ever again! - I will be pushing for full time living at Dupont. There may be nights when R stays in city due to working too late or bad roads; I hope those will be few and will diminish as he gets the idea of dealing with being 30 minutes away instead of 20. As in, "No, I cannot dash over to fix/talk to/..." He is recognizing his diminishing energy levels.
We still need to fetch snow tires from mill so they can installed when I go next week for rear brakes. I found the distiller tucked in a cabinet (I did it) here, so able to replenish supply. (After R searched in vain.)
Between car repairs and house, my wallet is undergoing much de-cluttering!
