We begin

Arrival day. It's five degrees. I'm so not joking.

On day one, both toilets in the rental house stopped working. On day two, all our water pipes froze. On day three--as we harvested snow from our backyard, melting it on our half-broken stove, so we could flush once for the night--one magical commode began working. Then the rental house saved our favorite piece of art. That's how we knew it would all be okay. 

Welcome to the High Plains.
