The Attic

I had been planning to run some network cables from my bedroom—where the only upstairs cable outlet is—to my office. The plan was to keep the cable modem in the bedroom, since it has to be, but to put the network router in the office, and reduce some of the clutter in the bedroom. (Not to mention all of the blinking green LEDs, that brighten up the room when we’re trying to sleep!)

Unfortunately, I took a look into the attic, and I saw this:

Now, I was expecting there to be some insulation. But I wasn’t expecting a 1- or 2-foot-deep sea of it, as far as the eye can see! I can’t even tell if there are places to walk; I tried digging around in the stuff in a few places, to see if there was a sturdy place to put my feet, but couldn’t find anyplace.

So my plans for attic wiring are temporarily on hold, until I can educate myself on the best way to proceed.
