The better part of this morning has been spent on windows. Yes, windows. Last summer during all the storms we had my front door side light windows blew their rubber seals. I guess this is fairly common in an area that has abrupt pressure changes as we do. However, I have not ever had that happen before.
I am prone to big headaches when the millibars start going up and down, but blowing a gasket has never happened. That is how my window man - Lee - explained it to me. You see most outside windows are made up of two panes of glass. A rubber seal sits in the groove and keeps the glass apart. Let me just tell you by the looksy of the seals on both windows we had some tremendous weather pressure changes.
Good news the window situation gave me some photoshop time/bad news it was a big bill! Any hoo, I thought I would share a couple of local windows. I love them both and often wonder as I pass them who lives behind them.
This window is downtown on the main drag. When people drive through on the way to the beach they pass this cute little pink cottage with this Rock & Roll poster in the window. I get such a kick out of it. Rock on!
As you walk along the waterfront downtown in one of the buildings there is this window. It is actually on the third floor in the residential part of the building. I always wonder if it was a memento from a business, is there a business up there, are they open? What are they selling?
Isn't it funny how a window can be so much? A door into a place and a door to watch the world go by...
