So we had 2 power outages last week. And it totally never occurred to me that our sump pumps wouldn’t work… until my mom mentioned it. That was a total DUH moment for me! In the 6 years I’ve lived here we’ve never had a power outage lasting longer than an hour or 2. And never during a record-breaking storm surge.
They are definitely no longer babies! Up until recently our 9 remaining “babies” were all girls, but a few days ago one turned into a boy and 2 more appear to be heading that way. Apparently that happens with Molly fish, within the first 6 months or so, which is why I’ve been VERY vigilant. We don’t need more fish babies!
Today was unseasonably warm – it got up to 48° which meant I could spray paint the 4 remaining door panels for the AC boxes – HOORAY!!! Painting the 2 green ones by hand was tedious and took hours and made my hand cramp up from jabbing a dry brush into every single hole to make sure no paint was stuck.
