The new vacuum is purple and there is only a 5 year warranty, but that's fine. If it last 15 years I'll be happy. I had, for a couple of moments, thought of getting another Miele but then there is the price, they're expensive and I really couldn't see spending that much money on something for the 2nd floor.
Mostly what I have upstairs is dust, some dog hair, but overwhelmingly it's dust. When I'm at work the dogs are relegated to the first floor (ground floor). It's still expensive, though, with tax almost $300. It's supposed to arrive on Thursday. I'm an Amazon Prime member, 2 day shipping, we'll see if that happens. Here lately they've kind of been dropping that guarantee with purchases arriving on the 3rd day. Still, shipping is still free, so I'm not really complaining. So tell me, isn't this a really nice looking 2nd floor sucker?
