I don't know if Dave's going to read this, but I figure I'll post it till he does.
Lightning aftershocks, day eleven. Well, the computer works, an army of appliance technicians (at least two) descended upon the homestead and none of the appliances are working. No oven, no washer and the dryer squeals like a pig. The laundromat is not a lot of fun either. Miraculously, the phone company decided to turn our phone on and charge us $71 and tell us absolutely nothing about why or how they did it. It's the phone company and they can do anything they want.
The weekend in Chicago and walking around parks in Columbus was fun though. Frankie loves to go to the local playground and play on the swing set.
