-4 Fahrenheit out there. Here in upstate New York we are a bit “frozen” in time and space. But the buses are running, the children are expected to attend.
Yesterday I noticed a cable hanging on my garage door, sort of sandwiched in between the door and the track, and weaving in and out. This was not a good sign, and an even less than happy sign as I tried it. So I unhooked the automatic opener and tried. Hah! There went every plan known to man (or to Kathleen, actually). My resumes, hot off the press, just waiting to be managed, the eye doctor appointment that needed to be rescheduled, etc. Despite my minor frustration, I did realize the synchronicity of the day, and went with it.
So, who do you call? Garage Door Man! Yes, Jack Hayes of Hayes Garage Doors (Guilford, NY). Jack called me back about 3:30 p.m., and made sure he got here before dark (actually arrived within the hour) and did a quick fix on the spring that was broken and will need to be replaced (ordering part necessary).
Jack Hayes. Hero of my day.
