On our street, the signs are all there. And they say "NO PARKING 12/27 - 12/30."
The moment I've been anticipating for nearly four years--the gas company is running a gas line to our house and I can get a gas stove! Actually, I've had a gas stove since October...but it's been in a warehouse, waiting for the gas company to install service and set in motion a chain of events involving the plumber and a Corian contractor. I estimate that by February 1, I'll be ready to cook my first pizza.
