It’s building code these days to put a one way valve on the main sewer line leaving the house so that if the city sewer backs up, it doesn’t flood the house. Irony abounds when the valve gets frozen stuck and the house can’t shed its sewage, thereby backing it up into the house. Three hours of clearing the blockage and sanitizing in the house. When the blockage finally cleared, I connected the hose to the spigot outside and cleaned the sewage off my back patio. Then, flushed (pun intentional) with victory, I took a long shower and we went to the movies. Anchorman 2: The Legend of Ron Burgundy Continues is a laugh a minute, and sometimes more. I found it a little relentless. A little wearing. I also forgot to disconnect the hose from the spigot. Right about midnight, I heard a sound like a gunshot, and then lots of water rushing. We got the house water turned off pretty quickly, but the PEX tubing has definitely burst inside the wall. We have a plumber coming over tomorrow morning to fix it.
I blame Obama.
