To-Do List: Remove Storage Container

Even before I moved onto the property in September 2014, I rented a 20-foot storage container and parked it at the end of the driveway across from the house. Actually, I'd never taken a photo of it until 2019—indeed, I've always worked hard to avoid catching it in any image—because I've always regarded it as an eyesore I couldn't wait to return. And I never imagined it becoming a fixture on my property for nearly five years. In fact, I've paid far more for its rental than I would if I'd bought it outright. But who knew?

Up until recently, I've more or less taken it for granted. But when I unearthed my new-old stereo from it on 23 December 2018, I discovered something very distressing: the container had developed a leak. And on 7 February 2019, I finally found the leak: right over a very expensive and irreplaceable printer. Into every life a little rain must fall...

At long last, the eyesore was emptied by 13 February 2019, and removed a week later.
