My landlord said he winterized the windows by painting them shut. I dont think thats a solution. Any tips for me to quickly shut out the draft and get those windows open? Chilly Nose in Brattleboro, Vt.A: There are better solutions out there, for sure, than painting over drafty spots in the windows. And having windows that are stuck shut is a clear safety issue. Since your land lord isnt in a hurry to fix or replace those leaky windows, you have some options to get through this winter comfortably and without having to spend too much money on heating. First, unstick those windows. Use a box cutter to slice through the new paint down to the corners where the window sash meets the frame. Then gently wiggle the window open so the new paint isnt damaged or torn away. Once the window is open, make sure it slides open and shut smoothly. If not, look for paint or other gunk on the slide tracks in which the sash is set. Sand this stuff away and then smooth the tracks by running a bar of soap along them a few times. Next, see if the screen outside the window (if there is one) is part of a storm window-screen combination. If so, you can slide the screen up to sit behind the top pane of the storm window, and slide the bottom storm window down. This provides added protection against wind and weather. Now, youll need to weather-strip the window. Measure the width and height of each window to figure out how much weather stripping youll need. For a rental unit, you shouldnt invest in the most expensive weather stripping, either. Compressible strips, usually made of foam or another flexible material, with adhesive backing usually work well and are easy to install. Measure and cut the stripping to fit along the bottom of the window sash. Make sure it fits and that the window closes completely and can be locked before attaching it by its adhesive backing. You may need to weather-strip other parts of the window, depending on their type, age and the condition theyre in. Make sure the strips dont interfere with easy operation of the window. If you have a door that leads outside, try adding a piece of weather stripping along the base of the door to keep out drafts. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com.

Shinseki), it wasnt as bad as expected. In a pre-shutdown reprieve, the VA was granted an exemption, and claims processing stayed up and running. However, during the shutdown, processors werent able to continue working their 20 hours per month mandatory overtime to whittle away at the backlog (claims that have been sitting for more than 125 days). That mandatory overtime has been a key component to getting the backlog reduced, and will stop completely in November. One would think that a lot of claims work was left undone. But the Monday Workload Report shows that despite the shutdown, the canceled overtime and all the doomand-gloom projections, the number of claims actually went down. Grant ed, they didnt go down by much, but they did go down. (If you want to view the archived file of Monday Morning Reports, go online to www. vba.va.gov/reports/mmwr/) Remember that before the shut down, the VA hadnt met its own projections of how fast the number of claims would fall on their way to eliminating the backlog. It didnt meet its own goal to the tune of approximately 100,000 claims for fiscal year 2013. (Some in Congress were a bit annoyed about that, since the VA had been granted $1.59 billion specifically to bring down the backlog.) Bottom line: If the mandatory over time is canceled permanently, then yes, the number of delayed claims can continue to go down, but it will be at a very slow rate. While the VA is still aiming for 2015 to clean up that backlog, its looking increasingly unlikely for that to happen.

My landlord said he winterized the windows by painting them shut. I dont think thats a solution. Any tips for me to quickly shut out the draft and get those windows open? Chilly Nose in Brattleboro, Vt.A: There are better solutions out there, for sure, than painting over drafty spots in the windows. And having windows that are stuck shut is a clear safety issue. Since your land lord isnt in a hurry to fix or replace those leaky windows, you have some options to get through this winter comfortably and without having to spend too much money on heating. First, unstick those windows. Use a box cutter to slice through the new paint down to the corners where the window sash meets the frame. Then gently wiggle the window open so the new paint isnt damaged or torn away. Once the window is open, make sure it slides open and shut smoothly. If not, look for paint or other gunk on the slide tracks in which the sash is set. Sand this stuff away and then smooth the tracks by running a bar of soap along them a few times. Next, see if the screen outside the window (if there is one) is part of a storm window-screen combination. If so, you can slide the screen up to sit behind the top pane of the storm window, and slide the bottom storm window down. This provides added protection against wind and weather. Now, youll need to weather-strip the window. Measure the width and height of each window to figure out how much weather stripping youll need. For a rental unit, you shouldnt invest in the most expensive weather stripping, either. Compressible strips, usually made of foam or another flexible material, with adhesive backing usually work well and are easy to install. Measure and cut the stripping to fit along the bottom of the window sash. Make sure it fits and that the window closes completely and can be locked before attaching it by its adhesive backing. You may need to weather-strip other parts of the window, depending on their type, age and the condition theyre in. Make sure the strips dont interfere with easy operation of the window. If you have a door that leads outside, try adding a piece of weather stripping along the base of the door to keep out drafts. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com.

Shinseki), it wasnt as bad as expected. In a pre-shutdown reprieve, the VA was granted an exemption, and claims processing stayed up and running. However, during the shutdown, processors werent able to continue working their 20 hours per month mandatory overtime to whittle away at the backlog (claims that have been sitting for more than 125 days). That mandatory overtime has been a key component to getting the backlog reduced, and will stop completely in November. One would think that a lot of claims work was left undone. But the Monday Workload Report shows that despite the shutdown, the canceled overtime and all the doomand-gloom projections, the number of claims actually went down. Grant ed, they didnt go down by much, but they did go down. (If you want to view the archived file of Monday Morning Reports, go online to www. vba.va.gov/reports/mmwr/) Remember that before the shut down, the VA hadnt met its own projections of how fast the number of claims would fall on their way to eliminating the backlog. It didnt meet its own goal to the tune of approximately 100,000 claims for fiscal year 2013. (Some in Congress were a bit annoyed about that, since the VA had been granted $1.59 billion specifically to bring down the backlog.) Bottom line: If the mandatory over time is canceled permanently, then yes, the number of delayed claims can continue to go down, but it will be at a very slow rate. While the VA is still aiming for 2015 to clean up that backlog, its looking increasingly unlikely for that to happen.
