  1. And Ta'veren Tees is shutting down . . . I just went to the website to try to get a Blue Ajah t-shirt but the only size they have left in blue is 2X. *sob* Looks like blue and green are the most popular; the only green left is size small. Red is still available in all sizes, as is yellow, grey, white, and black. Brown has a few sizes left but not all. And they're listed at $15 each, which is a good price. *sigh*
  2. Looks like I can still post but I don't have much time to get online. When driving we often lose signal and sometimes the modem here at C's house is spotty (and slow!). Went to Glacier National Park today. Much of the park was closed due to winter road conditions but we had a good time, spent some quality time together, and got some good pictures.
  3. Hey, I can post! Unfortunately, it's very late and I've been in the car all day. We drove a friend of our hostess back to his home in Idaho (4 hours each way). His truck broke down and our friend, C, was not up to making that trip due to her health issues. But we did stop briefly and had a quick snowball fight with the boys!
  4. They are Florida born and raised! Last time we had snow here was in 1989. My oldest has seen snow by now. I'm hoping there will still be some left when my youngest and I get there next Friday!
  5. Hubby and oldest are flying to Montana on Tuesday; youngest and I will follow on March 15 for a week. The friend we are going to visit says she has 4 ft of snow in her driveway . . . 😮 Should be interesting . . . my boys have never seen snow!
  6. Welcome to DM, Cazzly! Officially, that is, since you've been lurking for so long! I guess you already know about the different groups, in addition to the discussion pages. I hope you will stop by the White Tower and the Band of the Red Hand! Who is your favorite WoT character?
  7. We finally have cable, internet and phone at home again! After 65 days! The cable has been working a little for the past couple weeks but not very well. Tonight it's working like a champ AND we have internet again! Wooo-hooo! Wallboard has been put up in the house. They got the seams taped and skimmed but there's still a LOT of "mudding" to do, then DH will prime and paint. He likes to paint and it will save some money, plus insurance will pay us for the time he spends doing it. We ordered a storage shed on November 5 and was told it would be delivered in 3 weeks. It still hasn't been delivered. When DH calls about it, he's told that people who ordered in October are still waiting. The shed is built, just needs to be delivered from Alabama to here. Sounds like they need to hire more drivers . . . Really tired tonight so going to go to bed early. Will try to spend more time on DM this weekend now that I won't have to hot-spot in.
  8. I'm planning to make some beef rouladen some time this month. Mmmmmmm
  9. Both hospitals were severely damaged. Only one of them is now able to take in patients at this time and only in limited numbers. Most are still sent out of county.
  10. So we found out this week that one of the local hospitals is reducing its capacity to about 25% of what it was pre-Hurricane Michael. What does this mean? 800 lost jobs. We found out today that the mall will not be reopening and will be demolished due to damage from Hurricane Michael. What does this mean? 500 lost jobs. Those are the big hits. Other businesses are not reopening, as well. So many lost jobs . . .
  11. Here's some video of the storm. This was taken in Mexico Beach, which was on the east side of the storm. They got the worst of it. I hope the video works.
  12. Our insurance desk adjuster was on a conference call with us and the mortgage company last week and he was coming down pretty hard on the Loss Draft rep on the phone. He was pretty incredulous that they wouldn't cut a check for the roof because the report they had said it was done. So he was on our side, which was nice.
  13. Mortgage company still hasn't sent the check. As of today, they say they were able to verify the W-9 but were waiting for the check to be authorized. Hubby asked what date we could expect the check and they hemmed and hawed some more. He told them that if he didn't have the check in-hand on Wednesday to give to the contractor, we'd be going to an attorney. He also told them that our general contractor's son-in-law is an attorney that has started going after the mortgage companies that are doing this. Hopefully that will motivate them. We don't want to go that route but this is ridiculous. The roof has been done for 2 weeks! We need to get the drywall put in so we can get the insulation put back in so we aren't heating the county when we try to stay warm this winter but until the contractor gets paid for completed work, he's not starting any of the other work we need done! Fortunately, it's not cold right now but it's going to get cold again next week. *sigh*
