Yes, you heard right I am complaining about the weather!
Today I started the day thinking I would finally get an all day in the studio.
I packed Mark off to go work on our friend's house, made a cup of tea, put a load of clothes in to wash and went off to get dressed.
Then I walked back into the laundry room to find the utility sink filling up with water and the floor just about covered.
Well, shoot ( this is the clean version...)
I starting throwing towels at the water and turned off the washer.
Water,water every where and dirt and you know all that stuff the dryer throws out behind and under the dryer and washer.
Yep, the dust bunnies the size of Texas.
All floating around.
I started working on getting the mess up and figuring out how best to remove all the water.
I found out the dryer was really pretty easy to move, unhook and unplug.
Then I could stand where the dryer goes and figure out what I was going to do with a washer full of wet clothes.
I called Mark who did tell me the pipe that the water needs to go out of must be frozen.
Okay- good I don't need a plumber.
Broom, mop, vacuum cleaner was a good start.
Then I thought why not get a 5 gal bucket and put the hose in it and let the washer spin out the water.
Yep- I filled the bucket and looked at all that good water and thought of the best use for it.
I moped the laundry room, kitchen, bedrooms, living room, foyer.
I filled the 5 gal. bucket 2 and 1/2 times.
Hated to see the water just tossed.
And you know the house needed a good mop down.
So the spinning into the bucket worked.
I then put the clothes in the dryer.
The pipe thawed out and I heard all the water go down the sink around noon.
I did get out to the studio in the afternoon and roll out tiles.
So- hey- don't call me a plumber but I can solve a problem.
Now what will be in store for tomorrow?
