Yesterday and today have been "Plan B" days for us. DH was trying to repair a leak in the outside faucet and thought all was good when he heard water running under the house and realized something broke under there. So call to the plumber. We turned the water off at the street to hopefully stop the water flow - so buckets of water to flush the toilets and no dishes.
The plumber came this morning and is able to fix the faucet but in climbing under the house he discovered the tub drain pipe had been rusted out and running out into the crawl space probably for years. It's in a tight spot - crawling on your back to get over to that area. Yuck. DH has done work under there but not for a few years and not in that tight area. So right now they are repairing that drain pipe. Water is back on, phew!
Yesterday I went to the bank only to find out it was closed for Columbus Day so made another trip today (for our TOPS account). Also working on TOPS for tomorrow. Colds are going around so I have had calls from two who need to be excused. We encourage people not to come if they are sick because we have some with vulnerable health issues.
Tonight I plan to make a healthy version of spagetti and meatballs.
I'll have to go back and see what the pease pudding is about.
We've still got sunshine but rain supposed to come in later this week. Judy, you'll probably get some, too.
