Another day, another home-owner adventure. The new sewer line stops at the old sewer line down near the curb (the friend who did the work couldn't find the gas line so they tied the two before the city sewer line itself - the job was finished just short of getting rid of the worst of the old line). The tree roots have once again encroached on the sewer and the washer has backed up into the bathtubs today. So I will rent a snake and do what I can to cut out the roots. Trouble is, the machine is 225 pounds. I need to figure out a way to set stuff behind the SUV so I can move it from one level to the next without dropping it, and then when I am ready to return it, to get it back up my homemade ramp of stuff. With a regular ramp I couldn't push and pull it by myself. I've contacted a friend who is working in the neighborhood to help. It's that or rent a trailer, but I don't have a hitch on this and that's a whole 'nother expense. I might as well hire the plumber for $250 if I have to do the automotive AND plumbing thing. (The Home Depot rental is $69).

I will report back later.
