Our big move to New Orleans

It’s been a busy week for us. Movers from Williams Transfer in Tupelo came Thursday and loaded our stuff in Tupelo. BTW, it was snowing while they were loading. Brrrrr.

The guys then made the trip to New Orleans and met us at the apartment at 8 a.m. Friday. Friday, it was nothing but blue skies and sunshine in New Orleans. Nice change.

Word of advice to fellow newcomers: Make sure your moving truck has directions on roads that will accommodate a big truck. Our truck had to detour because of construction and the top of the truck pulled down a cable hanging overhead. Ruh roh.

We’ve been unloading and unpacking ever since. Some of the photo highlights from our move …

    Yeah, the plastic wrap was a superb idea. They had huge rolls on wands. Wrapped couches, love seat and mattress. The other furniture – rocking chair and dresser – were wrapped in big padded blankets.

    Only found one broken gravy boat so far. Looking good πŸ™‚

    Those guys are Great! So glad your move went smoothly. But I am slightly jealous of the snow. None of that down here in La.

      The snow was nice, but it created mud that’s all over the house now. Mopped floors twice and think it will take at least 2 more moppings to clean things up.
