OK. The unthinkable has happened. A few years ago, a genius DirectTV installer came to the house when we were having signal problems and told us that the dish had to be moved from the back lawn and mounted on the side of the house. OK.
So he came later to move it, but didn't bring a tall enough ladder, so he told us that he'd just climb onto the roof mount it up there. Now, I'm no newbie to satellite TV, so I asked about snow and ice accumulation, realizing that I couldn't clear the dish if it was covered by snow or ice. Oh no....he says. It's way up there. No problem. The snow would never get that deep.
Until yesterday. I have about 30 inches of snow on my roof and then the wind blew and my now dish is covered. Socked in. And probably covered until - oh - who knows - July? - because this snow isn't going anywhere. In fact, we'll probably get another 6-12 inches tonight.
So if my typing looks a little shaky, it's because I'm suffering from TV withdrawal. Which in the world of things to complain about, is really very trivial. I'll shut up about it now.
Moving on to stitching - the weekends are for LoHaR, so here she is. I worked on her most of the day Sunday and man-oh-man, I'm moving slowly. But I'm finally at the place where I can turn her around and work right-side-up. It just makes me feel better to be right-side-up.
