Most everyone has heard about Ohio’s “Hurricane” experience by now. We just got our power back on a day ago, and are scrambling to bring everything back in order. We are among the fortunate: there are still thousands struggling without their electricity. Like us, some are without running water since they have wells that need pumps working for their water supply. It impacts everything you do.
My proffered projects take a back seat now… although i had purchased the wallpaper for the den. Wallpaper is expensive! I no longer know of discount wallpaper outlets, so we ended up getting my choice at Lowes. Luckily, they had a decent looking grasscloth texture. I decided against real grasscloth because of the difficulty in cleanup. I don’t want something that the grandkids can accidentally mess up irremediably. Vinyl looks like new after a Simple Green swipe of marks and “art” on the walls.
My Handyman put up curtain rods and I am washing curtains right now ( oh the bliss of the home laundry!). Actually, everything that runs on electric and utilizes running water evokes exclamations of bliss right now. Even an old home remodeling veteren like me doesn’t go without both electric and water at the same time… although projects sometimes involved one or the other for short periods.
Once things settle down, I believe Handyman can write about the lessons he has learned about emergency preparedness. He devoted a lot of hours trying to get us functioning around here.
