What’s that Alison? You have an unusual number of spiders in you house? And your livingroom is freezing in all winter? Why would that be?
Well I don’t know.
BUT I THINK THIS MAY HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT!!!!!!
That’s right, we began demo on the porch (I’m actually really sad to see it go, it was cute and kind of a nice place to go and sit on a warm sunny day.) today and looky here, there’s a hole in the weird wood siding. The grey line shows the level of the top of the porch. (And, incidentally roughly the level of the floor of the living room that you’re seeing through the window.) I couldn’t see under that. How was I to know that someone, some time cut a huge hole in the exterior of my home?
What’s behind it? You ask.
There must, at least, be some insulation there, you insist.
No, no there mustn’t. There should be but obviously there’s no must about it because it ain’t there.
Whoever cut this very useful hole did at least put some wire mesh over it to discourage the mice (who, let’s face it, don’t need the help) but it’s not like that’s gonna keep the black widows out! And why in the name of striped pajamas would you cut a hole there anyway?
Come on people! I knew my house was ghetto but give me a break!
I wonder what other treats are in store for us? I’m headed to the roof tomorrow.
