The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

My Photo
Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Would you believe I got snowed in again?  In March?  In Arkansas?

Weather-wise, it's been a very weird year.  On the upside, I did get some much needed work done on the Devil Queen.  More posts to follow.

Wow a snowstorm in March in Arkansas IS weird!
So much for global warming, I guess.

Looking forward to seeing what you might have accomplished. I, personally, generally lie on the couch watching TLC so I can see other people bust their asses working on their houses. Ahem.

King Street,

Well, don't write global warming off just yet. My sister is a professional tree-hugger, and, according to her, the new in-term for "environmental apocalypse" is "climate change." If weather systems were moods, then "climate change" is the equivelent of rapid-cycling bipolar disorder; rapid, extreme, erratic change.
