My day got off to a bad start. I opened a window in my bedroom last night to take advantage of the cool night air. This morning I decided to close said window before I died of hypothermia. (It must have been about 58 degrees outside.) The window didn’t want to close.
It closed almost all the way, but not far enough for me to latch it. I guess I should tell you that the window is one of those double-paned replacement windows that is about 20 years old. They are plastic, aluminum and safety glass, and the window and frame come as a complete unit. About 10-15 years ago the outer pane got hit by a small rock kicked up by the mower. I watched it begin to fragment and then it fell out in a shower of little pieces.
Today was only the second time it gave me trouble. I tried bribery, negotiation and threats, but the window would not cooperate. Finally, I tried brute strength.
Plastic, aluminum and glass don’t respond well to brute strength.
So now I’m waiting on my bro-in-law to come measure for my new window. Thge good news is I figured out why it wouldn’t close. A piece of the weather seal between the inner and outer windows was sticking up too high. I’d fix it but we gotta buy a whole new window so what’s the point. The cats seem to like the new doorway because it gives them unfettered access to my bedroom.
So how is your day going?
