Just when you think things are warming up for the spring it gets cold again. Today’s bitter cold is coupled with high winds. I feel bad for those people without an alternative source of heat to their electrical heating. Power is still out in several areas.
I was in hopes to install new hardware on the front door. However, the bitter cold and wind are not conditions you want to stand there working on door locks. Most of the time you are working the door needs to be open. It isn’t going to happen today.

After working on my taxes, and getting the numbers mailed to my accountant, I decided to stop at Happiness Garden and get lunch. As I tell people, it is the best Chinese Restaurant in all Palmyra. In all fairness, it is good Chinese food. It is every bit as good as what you’ll get in Chinatown.
I brought it home, retired to the bedroom, and binge-watches Watch Over Me. (It’s a sappy sci-fi series from a decade ago about a guy who created a virus that is indestructible, then accidently got infected with it, and is desperately trying to create a cure.)
My next project is the front door. Comes Monday I will start. If it is too cold, I will simply drill the 2 1/8th inch holes and plug them with the locks. Then, when it warms up I will do the latch and mortise work.
I also want it warm so I can do some exterior painting and touch-up.
