Just went to put the last of the bagged ice into the ice dispensing bin, and when I opened the door what did I behold? Apparently overnight the ice maker suddenly decided to start working again. The bin was completely full. Well, at least next time it acts up, we’ll already have the ice cube trays and a plan, and you just know it’ll act up again eventually.
Next fridge we have to get, there will be no ice and water in the door. None. This is the second one we’ve had like this, and it’s always terrible. Ok well … the fridge and freezer parts of this one aren’t terrible. Actually pretty good. But the damn ice maker? Completely terrible.
It finally feels like four ice cube trays will do well enough to keep us supplied with ice, so tomorrow, I’m going to start refilling the dispenser bin with the bagged ice. I’d like to reclaim the freezer space that bag of ice is currently sitting in. It’s a lot of space. I’d much rather it be full of food. Or ice cream. Or anything other than ice, really.
Watched some YouTube videos on Warframe this morning, to see where that game has gone since I stopped playing it some years ago (was once my favorite thing to play). It’s looking cool, but even cooler is I found out Digital Extremes is working on a new game called Soulframe, which I might also like very much. Who knows when it’s coming out though, and whether or not it’ll live up to the early hype.
Also, not having seen any female characters presented yet, it may break one of of my cardinal rules of gaming. I won’t play games that only have lingerie armor and/or high heels for female characters. It’s fine if those are options, but my toon wants to wear actual armor and not be teetering around in stilettos, thanks.
Was not at all awake when I stumbled to the kitchen to make the husband’s morning coffee, and in autopilot mode, I made two cups. Been at least a couple months since I had any coffee, so I guess this is as good a time as any to have a cup and see how I feel about it now.☕️
My final report on my ice crisis:
I’m giving up on the ice maker. It’s either the motor or the internal water line, neither of which I can access without taking apart things not designed to be taken apart. So it’s a project for another day. Or never. Probably never.
I have finally learned how to use ice cube trays, and four looks like it will mostly be enough ice for us. The teal trays take six hours to freeze solid. The black trays take seven hours. No idea what the difference. Filtered water freezes faster than tap. And while the in door dispenser will crush the cubes, it won’t dispense whole cubes, which bothers me not at all, because I only use crushed ice. The husband will just have to work with this limitation in our ice dispensing capabilities.
So for the time being, our ice crisis is over. No one is happy about any of it, but we’ve got ice, and that’s what really matters.
