The trailer arrives

A few weeks ago, I talked about loading up a trailer and shipping it off to Park City. Last night the trailer got delivered and today it got unloaded.

Actually, the trailer delivery was pretty exciting to start things off. Instead of showing up between 2:00 and 4:00 as we discussed, the trailer arrived at 7:00. Not only does that mean the sun's illumination has gone, that means the temperatures have dropped 15 degrees and everything is freezing quickly. The truck was backing the trailer up, slide of the driveway into the ice and snow, and looked like it would become a permanent addition to the neighborhood. 45 minutes later, with a lot of effort, shoveling, and tire spinning, the truck was freed and the next effort got the trailer into position.

This is the view this morning. You can't see depth, but you can see that it is about 9 feet wide and 9 feet high, and it's loaded fairly tightly. All the crap is 16 feet deep. We hired two movers to get the bulk of it, although I ended up carrying my fair share as well.



We've now pruned out about 10 feet worth, so this is the last 6.



... and there was much rejoicing. The trailer got picked up in the afternoon and there is no sign it was ever here.



Unless of course, you look in the garage, pantry, storage room, bedrooms, pool room, .... Now we just have to unpack and process a seemingly infinite amount of stuff. I'm tired.
