Ok, that sounds like something completely unremarkable, and normally it would be.

The thing is, though, that over the past couple of months so many other appliances have died (either a timely death or death by misadventure) that it's going to be a bit of a novelty to not have to replace something this month. I'd thought that the fridge had been damaged by the recent storm, but it appears to have survived (almost) unscathed. Hooray.

Incidentally, why am I still awake at this hour? Blame it on another appliance. The Kreepy Krawly got stuck :(
