My street as it looked this afternoon. My house is on the left.
Our mild Winter is over and the weather has become oppressive and dreary. Over the past 2 days we have had about 15 inches of snow. Working on the 2-family house has become difficult. Even though we are working inside, using heaters, the temperature stays below freezing all day long. My crew spends a lot of their time huddled around the propane heater or one of the 2 electric heaters we are using.
Besides the oppressive cold and endless gray days, the big thing that has gotten me down is that some of my closest friends are unraveling from within and there seems to be nothing I can do to help them. One close friend has spent the past 5 weeks in the psychiatric unit of a hospital. Another close friend is spiraling downward on drugs ~mostly cocaine, and a third close friend is addicted to heroine. These are some of the primary members of my emotional-support team (it is a full time job involving many people ~It's not easy being Restoman).
I need a break from this bleak winter! I hope spring gets here soon!
