Welcome to That Old House

Thank you for finding That Old House amidst the chaos of the Internet. Yes, that is our house in the header.
This blog named itself. When I tell local people where we live, they almost always say, "Oh! You live in that old house!"
We do, and I'm glad you've come to visit -- Cass

How Cold Is It?

Looks like this rooster is peering through frosted glass, doesn't it? The type of crackly frosted glass you see on old fashioned shower doors.

But, no. This rooster is actually looking out of one of our sunroom windows, thick-coated with ice, courtesy of Mother Nature and her morning's wicked wintry mix.
Those are our sunroom doors. And I need to actually open them and venture out, soon, to take my dogs out. I don't want to do this, really I don't. Those dark blobs glimpsed through the ice are arborvitae shrubs. Even they look cold.

Spring can't come soon enough.

  2. I was very glad that the ice was outside the windows, and not inside!

  3. Will it ever be warm again? This ice is getting OLD. I really want to see some grass, and other green shoots poking up out of the ground... :)

  4. Green shoots and grass? Heck, I'd be happy to see DIRT at this point, as long as it's not white. Bring on Spring!

  6. I saw on the news this morning that there was a small earthquake in Morris County. Did you feel any tremors?

  7. Yes, Teresa, our house is close to the center of last night's quake. It was pretty amazing! Felt like something was beating up the poor old house. Thanks for asking! Cass
