GWe have been in a drought situation here in the southern US for the last 10 years. This is why I can't totally accept the "global warming" thing. Weather is cyclical. Now we are in the rainy cycle.
I just wish things would dry out. The ground has never actually dried out since the flood, a month ago now. The date of the flood was August 14, 2016.
FEMA Event Number 4277.
Still no word on the Flood Incurance check fiasco. But we did take the CRV for a spin to Best Buy. At Best Buy I scored $7200 worth of appliances for $5888. And got a $400 gift card for buying 4 appliances totaling over $4000 and all those dollars in points on my Best Buy card thing. But delivery can't make it before October 18th. Geez.
Like the Visa Airline miles and the Master Card Cruise points, I should rack up on free things next year.
Steam is the new byword. I bought a GE Profile, double wall, top convection oven with steam clean option; a GE Profile hidden controls, bottle washer, 140 spray jet dishwasher with steam sanitizing; an LG 5.2 cu ft washer with steam to loosen stains and an LG matching dryer with steam setting that keeps your clothes from wrinkling if you should forget them for 10 hours.
Seriously. My house should bake its own pies, clean up its own dishes and fold the clean laundry every day. And I haven't even replaced the Roomba yet! (I wonder if there is a steam option on THAT yet?)
My old appliances were not that old, and they were all similar to these. There was steam in the dryer, but nothing else. That has all been invented in the last 5 or 6 years. Who knows if they will be an improvement or not. Or even useful.
I just want my old stuff back.
So I rewarded myself with better stuff.
Isn't that the way it works?
