Ice, Ice Everywhere!

I always knew that things could go wrong in a house, but I never imagined how many of those things would go wrong in the first month of owning our home.

We've owned the house for all of 3 weeks, and so far we've had a delay in closing that forced us to push a bunch of deliveries back, a broken down car, a broken down washing machine, a flooded apartment, and now an ice storm! Needless to say, we're just waiting for the other shoe to drop!

2013 has been a very memorable year, both with positives (getting married, starting law school, buying a house), and with negatives (two major dog emergencies, multiple major expenses at inopportune times).

What better to (hopefully) cap the year off than an ice storm! Right?!? After stepping outside at one point and hearing a nearly constant "crack, crack, CRASH!!!", I knew this was gonna be a fun one!

So far there have only been two major tree limbs that have fallen from my trees (along with a bunch of smaller branches.

One limb fell right in the middle of the yard. The other is sitting on the chain link fence and the neighbor's yard

Well, looks like I'm in the market for a chainsaw! I'm not stressing at this point, just sitting in front of the fire, enjoying the ability to work from home.
