Thursday has arrived. Today and tomorrow, even though the temps have not been cold enough for a frost, are supposed to hit the mid to upper 70s (F). Translation, Faux Indian Summer. This is what's been happening over the past few years. Next week, if the predictions are correct, the temps are supposed to drop into the upper 30s (F). That's still not quite cold enough. The sad truth is that after the first frost, our temps might climb into the upper 60s (F) and that would be our Indian Summer.
The plumbers were here yesterday. $$$ I now have a water hookup for a washer on the 2nd floor. There were 2 of them and they did not seem to be pressed for time, since they took over 2 hours for what is a rather simple job. I made a mistake by telling them I could patch whatever holes they deemed necessary, and as a result, they cut a big hole with multiple pieces.
