I went over to the U-Haul folks this morning to pick up my moving truck. The reservation I made 3-4 weeks ago turns out to have been worthless; not only was there no 20-foot truck at that establishment, there were in fact no trucks to be had anywhere in the city. After some back-and-forth, the reservation folks got me a 17-foot in Dickson TN. My brother will pick it up and drive it here to Memphis tonight.
Add to that, on my moving day tomorrow, there is a U2 concert about 1/2 mile from my new rental house, and some streets have been blocked off. Thank goodness there's a back way in to my new address.
