seeing through the smoke

** smokey view of effects from Four Mile Canyon fires in the foothills of Boulder **

** same view as above on the next day.  Progress, but still burning **

TODAY:  I just took a shower and drank a cup of coffee.  Do you understand what that means?  It is simply amazing considering the fact that less than 24 hours ago the water contents of our shower and sinks were sitting on the basement floor via the downstairs bathroom shower drain.  How lovely.  Also lovely that Dan discovered the rather unappealing job a previous owner did of plumbing the severely undersized pipes and with duct tape, no less.  But thank goodness for my handy-dandy man Dan and his skillz we now have our H2O back plus a dry basement, a finished fence for the doggies, a working kitchen sink with a working dishwasher…oh my, hooray!

Progress is being made all around – countertops are being discovered again and lost clothing is starting to reappear.  Next up, washer, dryer and gas range hook-ups.  I guess that means I’ll have to start cooking and doing laundry again and, at this point, I am okay with that.

Onward!
