A soggy weekend has begun. Outside, the rain is steady, not heavy; what we like to call a soaker, where there is just enough time for the rain drops to soak into the ground. They're forecasting 1 - 2 inches, which is basically a drop in the bucket to the 2 feet Ian dropped on Florida. Temps today are predicted to hover in the upper 50s (F). Sadly, that temperature is one at which grass will continue to grow, so I'm expecting to be mowing my front lawn next Friday.
Tuesday, the plumber will be here to give me an estimate on the water hook-up on the 2nd floor. I could almost envision $$$ adding up in the receptionists head when I told her where the new washer was going to be located. As I told her there was both a sink and a shower on the other side of the wall, I could hear those $$$ draining out of her voice as she said, "oh, that'll be easy."
Also, I'm going with a ventless dryer, (yes there is such a thing.) I can't see spending $500 to have some contractor lean a ladder up against the backside of my house just to chop a whole in the wall for a vent.
I do get to work today, so I'll probably post a pic or 2 tomorrow of the updated Flooring Department. They did transfer a full time associate into our department as a specialist. I can see him spending a lot of time back in the employee lunch room to avoid having to design blinds, and work with quotes on floors.
Here's a pic I took of the dogs this morning. I call it Rainy Day Dogs.
