COUNTDOWN T-2

MAY 03, 2021



2 days to go

This is the third in a series of five posts. Click here for part 1, or here for part 2.

One of the things that was interesting about our arrival to our new home was the hurricane shutters. We had never seen the house with them closed up, so that was quite an interesting and visual experience.

In fact, I don't think I'd ever seen such substantial hurricane shutters before we bought this house, and that was a real plus for me in terms of feeing safer and better about the storms and hurricanes. We unlocked and opened them and, once again, it was a beautiful sight with a beautiful view, both inside and out.

I vividly remember the look on the faces of the previous owners when we mentioned our plans to live here full time. Little did we know that most all of our neighbors had other homes and considered the homes in this area as their weekend retreat.

Like everyone else around here, the previous owners left the water turned off and would turn it on anytime they came to stay. So, I went on a mission to find the water meter and cut the water on. For one reason or the other, when I cut the water on the guest bathroom sprang a leak and Patty called out to let me know what was going on.

I quickly cut the water back off, shut down the toilet valve in the guest bathroom, and cut the water back on. A quick repair and we were back in business, but I remember thinking that we didn't want or need any more excitement like that during the move.

More tomorrow when the countdown continues!
