What a storm!

I know, you are going to hate me for saying this, but it was magnificent! And I feel really bad for all the people that have experienced property damage. We know that some of our neighbors had to move out of their homes because of the fallen trees. My heart goes out to them. My in-laws are still without power and are moving in with us until it is restored.

But, but, it was really humbling to watch the nature show us just how small we actually are. We, as a family, are giving our thanks because we haven't experienced any problems. I haven't been to the basement, cause I'm kid of afraid, but the French drains we have haven't failed us... yet. OK, I have to go look now.

Dry! Yes! Very cool. Guys, French drains are a worth while investment.

We did loose some roof tiles, 5 to be exact. Not sure where they were, but when the roofer comes for the flat roof job, we'll just ask him to take a look. It will be easier with the scaffolding up, rather than trying to do it right now.

See, no big deal. This old lady is something else, I have to say.

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?

The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Award from Montclair Historic Preservation Commission

We are very honored. Here is the story in Baristanet.

And here is the photo of the porch.

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
