Grump Central Archive: Week of 9 September 2018

Saturday, 15 September. Halfway through September, I feel as if I've barely made any progress since the nightmare ended six weeks ago. There have been a few positive signs, but not the big burst of activity one might have expected. More evidence of how indifferent I've become about the project.


Friday, 14 September. Finally got some movement on the electric service project, which has allowed me to order the necessary materials.


Thursday, 13 September. Hit and run: JCP&L changes the rules of the game for electrical service, then their rep drops off the face of the earth. I think he's joined my architect. Good thing I don't own a firearm, as I've just about had it.


Wednesday, 12 September. A big wrench has been tossed into the electrical service project already: JCP&L has changed the specs for the material to use. Meanwhile, I desperately need new blueprints for the house revisions, and my architect is AWOL...


Tuesday, 11 September. If all goes well, today I'll be able to start work on getting permanent electric service. I just wish I was excited about it.


Monday, 10 September. The rain continues, exacerbating my despondent mood as progress with the house feels like wading through hip-deep mud. And now hurricane Florence is bearing down on the east coast...


Sunday, 9 September. Until I have inspections, there's very little left that I can do on the house, so once again I'm at a standstill until the logjam clears. And a rainy weekend curtailed any outdoor activities.
