Pain Made No Less Because It Is Shared

I just came across this potentially chilling bit of comisseration: The author's circumstances are remarkably similar to ours: a couple living in their row house while renovating, except the amount of actual work to be done (as well as their expertise, it seems) rivals ours by a lot. Mold, termite damage, and an additional storey to have to work on.

The chilling part is that the final blog entry was in November of last year, in the middle of framing the second floor. With all of the stress that I can project into each blog entry, it reads to me something like the final photos of Scott Fisher's Everest expedition before it was buried by a looming storm. He still sounds chipper, but his year-long silence is more than a little ominous...
