Cold, Cold, Cold, and Snow Coming
I wonder if I'm feeling colder than usual because I lost weight. I was shivering in my coat and with the heat turned up on the way to the Giant to get groceries. On the way back in, I noticed the mailtruck at the set of clusterboxes before ours so I just pulled into a parking spot next to ours and waited. I had a lot of frozen food (Marie Callender dinners for 4 for $10 and if you buy 8, you get a $10 coupon for anything the next time you shop) and figured it wouldn't thaw. I even turned the ignition partially on and the heat back on because I got cold. I don't usually run things off the battery. I got my mail -- she said it was all of it -- and drove on to my parking spot. I was loading things into the rolling crate when Luke came out and went to get his mail. When he came back, he knocked on my door -- the mail lady had given me all the catalogs, but not the letters.
Only one was actually a letter and it was from our new condo management company. They're a very small company, but they're local, and they've got to be better than the last guys. I posted earlier this year that the son of the owner of our old management company had embezzled from the organizations they ran but I didn't think he did from us because our budget is so small that the board would notice it. Well, an audit shows he took a bit more than $26K. We'll get it back through insurance, but I do wonder why the board didn't miss that much money (about an eighth of our budget).
The weather reports are showing the line between "Dusting to 1 inch" and "1 inch to 2 inches" right here in Manassas, so who knows how much snow we'll get tomorrow. I know it's not a lot, particularly to those of you in Mpls, but the board won't have the sidewalks shoveled for that and I won't be able to go out until it melts.
Look a couple posts down and see something similar. There wasn't anything under the latch in the clusterbox on Tuesday, but there was two of the…
Yes, we have that very high temperature plus the heat index is 122F. I can't go out, of course, and I'd plan to get mail when it's cooler, except we…
Earlier this week, the computer wouldn't stop. I looked all over for something that might work, other than unplugging, and when I didn't find…
