Nasty, No Good, Should Have Stayed-in-Bed Day
I suppose it would have been funny if it had happened to someone else.
Unfortunately, it happened to me.
In the course of getting exterior measurements for a new listing on a very cold Minnesota January day — that would be yesterday — I was walking around the perimeter of the home when suddenly the ground beneath me literally gave way.
It turns out I had stepped on — and through — the very thin covering on top of a window well that was obscured by the snow.
For good measure, my fall broke the moulding on a Living Room window (or vice versa) directly above the window well. Fortunately, I wasn’t otherwise hurt (if you exclude an injured ego).
Adding a few extra insults to injury: first my pen froze, then snow got on my MLS input sheet, making the ink bleed and my measurements illegible.
