Lighten up Mondays

Posted on Updated on

Metal SunMy husband and I purchased an old home in Northern New York State from two elderly sisters.  Winter was fast approaching and the season’s first snow came early; I was very concerned about the house’s lack of proper insulation.

“If they could live here all those years, so can we,” my husband confidently declared.

On New Years Eve the temperature plunged to below zero and we woke up to find the interior walls covered with frost.

My husband called the sisters to ask how they had kept warm all those years they lived in in the home.  After a rather brief conversation he hung up.

“For the past 30 years,” he muttered, “they’ve gone to Florida for the winter.”
