Last November I rented a snake/roto rooter device to clean out the tree roots at the bottom of my sewer line. Yesterday when the washer ran it backed up into the tubs and I fear it is time again for the device. At some point I need to have the bottom few feet of the sewer line replaced by a plumber who is insured in case they hit a gas line. Most of the line was replaced a couple of years ago down to that point, but since the friend who did it is a public works employee and he couldn't find the gas line so they stopped short of finishing the whole job. I may run a simple snake down there now just to open things up a bit. I did put some Liquid Plumr down the line in case there is a grease buildup impacting things. A human plumber is going to cost me a couple grand for the rest of the job as far as replacing the end of the sewer line to the city connection.

There is a hurricane in the neighborhood - we won't get the wind or rain, but we are getting the overcast and the humidity. This morning it was 89%. Once it moves on it should be more comfortable again and I'll walk the dogs again.

Sunday night noir movies this evening feature Humphrey Bogart, in the background as I work my way through a defensive driving online course.
