Good to know it was only an application thing. A friend of DS sent a title in to do a transfer thing and in 3 months it has never turned up.... been a PITA for them. That is why I refused to send mine and decided to just wait on the appt. Everything is so screwed up anymore and DMV is ridiculous.
There will never be a "back to normal" for many of these places I'm afraid.

I have a passport and a passport card so I was thinking I could save money by getting a driver's privilege card like DW did last time she renewed but there wasn't an option. I guess because I already had a Real ID license. I guess her prior license wasn't Real ID.

And no one at the PO noticed that the address was wrong? How long was it sitting in the wrong box? Why didn't the owner of that box give it back to the clerk? How big is this town you live in? DW would have caught that and put it in your box.

Population 6,011. Two numbers were transposed. I guess the overworked drivers license workers didn't look at the actual drivers license to check the address. LOL LOL

Got my driver's license last week. All washed out, almost black and white. Apparently they are all like that now even though it is the same picture as my prior license which was bright and in color. The check for the car registration was cashed 3 days ago so hopefully I'll get the paperwork soon. Also hopefully no cops will notice the expired registration when I do the 425 mile round trip to MA tomorrow.

Yet another night and day of 40+ MPH winds .... and

It was still standing when I left at 9 AM but clearly in bad shape. I figured I'd take it down when I got from my morning appointment and shopping. The wind didn't wait. All but one of the vertical pipes is broken at some place, also a couple of the "rafter" pieces. Not sure if there is enough to rescue and maybe make something connected to the old deck piece behind the little barn (which you probably don't recall, looks like this):

I really don't want the backhoe out in the weather. For the moment I've got a couple of tarp pieces covering the hydraulic cylinders since they are all extended.

Those winds were certainly rough. I'm glad you mostly made it through without damage. I amused myself during it by watching a gallon bell chicken waterer get blown across the yard over those two or so days. So low profile, so traveling on its own. Very heavy wind (we only lost a little door trim as far as I can tell).
