You know what's not fun?

1. Getting to your mountain house after dark on a cold February night and discovering that the roof, which has upon it two feet of rapidly melting snow, is leaking into your solarium.

2. Discovering shortly thereafter that your internet isn't working and the internet people have to come out and fiddle around with the doohickey while you twiddle your thumbs waiting to feed your addiction.

3. Downloading pictures from a brief snowshoe trip up the mountain and finding a persistent dust mote on the digital sensor.

4. Opening the refrigerator door and noticing that, just to add insult to injury, the refrigerator light is out.

None of this is fun. Nope. Not fun. Not even a little.

It's still better than being anywhere else.

Ah oh. Not good at all. Especially fidding around with your doohickey. In the dark. In the cold.

Well, you know. What else is there to do in the cold and dark?

Murphy's Law strikes Montana! Well, at least you evidently have your internet back. Things must be looking up.

Trailhead said...

Things are looking up indeed. This is just the annoying BS you have to put up with when you have a house in a cold climate that isn't constantly inhabitated in the winter. I had forgotten even to mention that the gutters broke, too. Bah -- lots to maintenance to do. But the weather is beautiful and clear and not too cold.
