taxes death and trouble

In keeping with everything else about this 112-year-old house, putting the window screens in is three times harder than it needs to be--and they're even replacement windows (thank cod) not wood framed ones.

Specifically, I just spent a fruitful hour prying the full-height storms off the outside of the house (they're the kind you take off with a screwdriver), dealing with petrified weather stripping, painted-in frames, and the terrifying moment when this five-foot-tall window finally comes free and is teetering over your head.


But now I can open my windows now.

And I am feeling much better.
