Woah...you're the only person I've heard of living in the Midwest with a gas dryer. I thought that was more of a coastal thing for some reason.

We have a gas dryer

How did the install go? How's the range on the chimes?

I actually didn't get the one above, I just picked one up at Home Depot the other day. It's just a simple wireless one. Only has 2 different chimes but it works fine. I don't need a fancy doorbell.

One thing that was annoying is that the button case is slightly wider than the trim around the door so it wouldn't fit on there. I had to use the adhesive mount and stick it on the brick part, so I hope it stays on.

You make it sound like the $12 I ordered from Amazon is amazing.

Did you just rip the old one off and cut the cable? Or rather unscrew it properly? Were there holes to fill since the new one doesn't fit over it?

I got mine on Saturday and haven't opened the box yet.

That was the weird thing, the old one that was on there was also a battery powered wireless one. So the old owners must have taken the chime part and left the button. It does look like there are a couple tiny wires if I ever wanted to do a wired one. I just took the old one off but I haven't filled the screw holes yet.

Remember to unhook your garden hoses. It might start freezing sooner than later and leaving the house on the outdoor bib is bad news then.

Yeah I need to do that yet. I don't think it's been below freezing yet, but it's definitely dipped into the 30's so we're very close. I wanted to hold off as long as possibly with cutting off the rest of my habanero peppers in the garden, but I might need to do that this week too.

I'm living life on the edge since I am still watering new grass that I planted a few weeks ago. No lows below freezing in the 10 day forecast and I also run the sprinkler every 8 hours so it shouldn't freeze until it is further than just freezing (I assume).
