Closing scheduled for this coming Wednesday. This can't happen soon enough!
We're finally in the new house. Got a bunch of strong teenagers from my son's youth group at the church to help move the furniture upstairs at a fraction of the cost of movers (but what must have seemed like big bucks to them).
Verizon is there now digging around next to my driveway running new fiber.

Ah, YOUR version of "KidPower" .... gotta love it! <evil grin>
After cutting out a wall to fit my washer and dryer into the laundry closet (it's going to have bifold doors; I guess whoever built this thing intended to use stackables), I have discovered that the drain fitting that I thought was intended for the washer is actually some old fitting that's absolutely sealed shut.
I don't know what's wrong with it ... it's got a nipple on the end that looks like it's intended for a rubber hose to slide onto it, and it goes directly into the main waste stack.
Anyway, as I go to repair or replace this thing, let me ask this question:
Is it acceptable to direct-plumb a washer drain into the waste line like that? I did buy some rubber hose and ran it in a loop that went higher than the washer before going back down to the drain connection. Can I do my new connection that way? Or is it a requirement to have a washer standpipe with the appliance's drain loosely fitting into the top to let air in?
Hey congrats to the clan! Enjoy!
You know, there are circumstances under which you can have backslash through the waste line - so the higher you go, the lesser the chance your floor gets filled with fancy smelling whater ;-)
Usually you want a waste trap / syphon so you don't get fancy odors in your flat.

Hey, I thought we were supposed to "|" it to something in a piecework order.
sent with a picture if possible. Live stream would be nice but I don't have a router I could send video
Subject: Lawnmower FAIL
I know I need a new mower for the larger yard, but it won't arrive for another couple of weeks so I wanted to try to get one more cut out of the old mower.
It had a different idea. A few minutes into the job, it literally blew itself apart:

The whole assembly carrying the carbeurator and choke blasted itself right off the side of the engine. There was no putting it back on, either -- we're talking broken parts here, not just spontaneous disassembly.
The fact that it then caught on fire kind of sealed the deal. I figured the fire would go out when the rest of the fuel was consumed, but the plastic fuel tank and all of the other plastic parts of the mower were burning too. I eventually had to douse it when it started spewing thick black smoke towards the neighbors.
I have an appointment with Mr. John Deere.
I'd be impressed if you had bought a deer plow .... for your new Cat.
Then I will no longer care about the snow. :)
Your misery provides us entertainment.
