New toy....I mean dryer...

wanted to get up early today and um, that led to me getting up at 10....alrightie then!

so last thursday was dryer delivery day....got a call from a texas phone # and it was the delivery guy saying they'd be here in about 20 minutes....that was at 3:15....4, and still waiting....wendy was out and about and it was LIGHTLY snowing out, so i texted her asking her if the roads were bad or something and she said people were having snow amnesia and there were countless people who had slid off the road....okay, if you've lived in areas with snow longer than 5 years continuously, and you get 'snow amnesia' you need your license revoked....this happens EVERY FUCKING YEAR....it's insane!!!

delivery truck arrives at 4:30....they try to back into the driveway....there is a VERY slight slope in the driveway apron....it's a very big delivery truck....he really guns the gas and the truck slides towards my house....the guy directing him had him brake just in time, or the area where the dryer was going would have been filled with rubble....then he tries to back in again and almost takes out my maple tree....i come out into the siberia we now inhibit and suggest they just park it on the street...they're getting the dryer out of the box and putting the cord on and i'm talking to the driver saying i thought they were in an accident or something and he said they're from texas and they've never driven in the snow before....

why in the fuck is home depot having people from texas delivering in this area? i understand the appliances aren't from the store's stock; but if someone isn't from this area, or driven in snow, won't the delays--and possible insurance claims if they take out part of a house---wipe out any alleged profit from that? if the appliances are coming from texas---i dunno where they're coming from---up to here, why not have a local person driving at least? or that might make too much sense....

it was about 4:45 when they were done, which was very quick, and they had 12 more stops....they should have gotten off work around 7pm but they figured it'd be around 10pm...they then tried to turn around in the lot across the street and almost got stuck....the ruts the shooters left had become filled with ice and they were sliding, then were spraying dirt everywhere...they ended up just backing down the street to Luedella....

the new vent was a pain in the ass to hook up....it was like 2' and you had to stretch it out to 8'....it wasn't aluminum foilish, it's pretty solid metal....i heard carnival music playing faintly in the background.....ended up cutting my hands on it too fastening it to the outside vent and to the dryer vent....

pix taken with cell phone so i have no idea why top part is sort of blurry.....i don't intend to become a cell phone camera expert so i'm not going to bother to care....



dryer has amazingly more capacity than my old one....i washed clothes and sheets and all fit in the dryer and it wasn't even filled half way!!! all dried within about an hour too! now i wanna wash like everything just to play with the dryer....yeah, like a kid with a new toy...

eddie has a new toy he's yet been able to play with....he got a snowblower and we've yet to have enough snow for him to blow....

okay....new toy dryer report....more later....
