Our snow has been melting, and the grass has reappeared. There is still some snow around, and I suspect it will be a while before the mountain of snow they cleared off the parking lot at the church melts, but the stuff up near the house is all gone. I went outside today to check on the window installation, and discovered that I have plants coming up. I don't know if they are the bulbs I planted, or things that the previous owners had planted. I do know that they give me hope that spring is coming. I'm grateful for that hope, especially since we have a winter storm alert up for Sunday. They are predicting 6 inches of snow.
My windows are all installed. They completed the job in 6 hours, and I think they did a good job. I am pleased with the way they look. I was concerned, because they are different from the original windows. The original windows were casement windows, and brown on the inside. These are sliders, and they are white on the inside. The only downside is the odor of the caulk.
It was not a pleasant evening with Daughter. I won't get into details, but it was not fun. I'm considering informing her case manager that I'm not able to keep her safe at home any more. She's picking the locks on the pantry doors at night.
