Out of the Blue

A conversation in the forums got me to thinking about the missing screen and storm windows in our bathroom I mentioned yesterday. I had just measured the opening to see if I could find a replacement somewhere when it struck me that it would be very odd for someone to throw storm windows in the garbage unless they were completely destroyed. Sure enough, a little poking around in the corner of the basement that still contains mysterious odds-and-ends we found when we moved in here turned up a screen and both storm windows. They needed cleaning, but were otherwise in perfect condition, and slid right back into place. I guess they were removed for painting, and were never replaced when they couldn't get the window back open again, but whatever the reason, this was a satisfying conclusion to an odd situation.
