The march from “Summer” to crap it’s snowing in September!


Does anyone else think that it is a good chance that we’ll see snow on the ground by September 31st this year?  The glorious weather we had just a week and a bit past appears to have been what would have been a heat wave in a normal summer (40+ degrees) but was the only thing that looked like summer this year.

I’m going to hibernate this winter, call me when the Great Lakes have dried up due to the heat.

August Ninth – First Official Day of Summer 2009 in London


Yup, it has finally come.  Summer is here.  It’s only about 2 and half months late too.  We enjoyed the sun a bit and got out into the trees and around the ponds some.  It was Humid and Sweaty and juuuust perfect.  If I wasn’t on call today I’d be looking for a patio to embarrass myself on.  Maybe next weekend will be nice?  The forecasts have been so unreliable I’ll just wait until Wednesday to decide.

Water Damage in our Basement

Sometime this morning while I was still in bed and Jen was upstairs with me (we don’t go to bed until 3-4 AM on work nights) our downstairs toilet overflowed or backed up. This is the result:

Water Damage

This s the northwest corner of our basement, it looks better now as the water has stopped.  This part of the basement does no’t have dry wall.  Thank goodness.

Water Damage

The Water is cpoming down from a toilet that backed up / overflowed on our first floor.  It overflowed right into a heating vent.  DAMN!

Damn!  Mouse Crap Everywhere!

When I pulled down the drop cielings I found mouse crap and a nice bag of seeds/rodent food hidden up there!  How AWESOME!

Damn!  Mouse Crap Everywhere!

More Mouse Crap!  EXCELLENT!
