Okay, Wednesday, here we go! Our temps are supposed to climb into the lower 70s (F) today, how nice is that? Predictably, however, as in every autumn, the bottom is supposed to fall out and by the end of the week our highs are going to be in the mid to upper 50s (F). I have turned the heat on, but am keeping it at 70 (F) and so far it hasn't been running... much.
The tech from Wilbur Plumbing was here yesterday. Honestly, I was expecting him to quote me a price slightly lower than the $1200 Bowman Plumbing wanted to charge. I almost fell over when he saw what needed to be fixed and quoted me $300. Wowza! The repairs took him about 50 minutes and now there are no leaks! He even connected the water supply line and the drainage for my dishwasher (Bowman was going to charge me $652). Why such a disparity in prices? Wilbur is a smaller, family run business, they have a smaller overhead, and they are more interested in fixing your problem, unlike Bowman Plumbing which wants to sell you a "project." So, if you're in the Central PA region and you need plumbing assistance, I highly recommend Wilbur Plumbing. (How's that for a plug?)
And yes, my dahlias are still blooming. Here are the orange ones.
