I think I could be perfectly happy to never see another snowflake! We have about eight inches on the ground and more falling–I went to Billings today for one last good haircut and the roads were totally clear from the Boulder Road all the way to Billings. Seems we might have been right in the eye of this snowstorm. It’s so icy and slippery–I slip and slid always worrying about falling. At our age falling on the ice isn’t a good thing!
Monday we stayed home–can you believe it?? We packed and packed some more until we were both exhausted. I’m thinking one house and a small RV which isn’t big enough to hold anything would be the way to go??? Tuesday we had to be in town before the garbage truck came to Nat’s. We also were planning on a dump run but had our hours crossed–the dump isn’t open on Tuesday.
Billings was busy today–it almost seemed as if it was Christmas there were so many people out and about. Do you have cable TV? Nat had cable TV through Spectrum. When we called to cancel the service we were told the equipment had to be returned in order for us to receive a refund. So today I took the equipment to the Spectrum offices in Billings. Six people waiting in line, two customer service reps helping two other people. As I waited, more people came in behind me. I walked up to the counter and politely asked if they could locate some help as the line was getting long. The woman was very rude and told me, “no, there are just the two of us.” I told her, “well, my time is way more valuable than to wait in line at a cable company, I will leave this box of stuff over here out of the way and you can process it at your leisure.” I wrote Nat’s name and account number on top of the box and walked out. I called Spectrum on the way to my hair appointment and the customer service rep who answered the phone was a jewel. We had been told we either had to return the equipment to the nearest service center–Billings–or drop it at the nearest UPS Store–Livingston. The helpful customer service rep was very apologetic that the original phone rep had not told me they would send a prepaid box for the equipment. So, so very glad I do NOT have cable! UGH!
We’ve slogged around in the snow and ice all afternoon packing–without the motorhome and its heat we can’t load some things until the last minute–such as my house plants. I only have two small ones and they’ve always traveled with us but then it’s been a few years since we’ve left in a snowstorm at a predicted 16 degrees!
Soon we will be seeing sunshine!
