I'm home

I'm back in Maine. I arrived last night.

It's a lot colder now than it was when I left. I had to switch to a heavier jacket. I also had to turn on the heat in the apartment. It is still a bit chilly in here. It will take me a few days to get the thermostats set correctly. It would be nice if the temperature on the dial was the actual temp that I wanted. It would make it a lot easier to set. As it is, I have a 10 degree guess factor when setting the dial. They should have just marked it with cooler and warmer with arrows. That would be as effective. Oh well, the temp is almost there.

I picked up and sorted through 4 weeks of mail today. Nothing really exciting. I noticed my electric rate went back up. I guess the drop last month was good while it lasted. It's now even higher than it was before the rate drop last month.

DSL is now in my area! I picked up a DSL modem at the phone company today. I was told it will take 5-7 days to connect my phone line over to the DSL line. After they finish the switching of the lines, they will call me and set up my account.

It will be nice to put my dial-up modem back in the closet.
