Y'know what's awesome! Dealing with plumbing issues at 9:30 at night. Yay!
Ugh. Actually, I was taking a shower this morning and had just finished when Mark banged on the door to tell me to shut the water off because the basement was flooding. When we saw it wasn't going up anymore, we decided to leave it and see if it dropped on its own. The weather got incredibly nice incredibly quickly so almost all the snow is melted so the city sewer lines are very full so we figured that was what the problem was. It had dropped a little by lunchtime and a little more by after work so I went to yoga class and then when I got back at about 7:30 we took the shop vac and started hauling water up and dumping it outside. When we got it to below the floor level but couldn't get it any lower no matter how much we hauled, we called a plumber. He's downstairs right now using a ginormous drain cleaning snake thing and fixing the problem (we hope). It's pretty reasonable too, he quoted $250 for the fix.
And I'm really happy that I'll get to have a shower tomorrow morning :D
AND I still did Coach Nicole's Butt Blasting Video. Day 2 of the streak!
