Our older house had gifted us with a few surprises over the years, but nothing dramatic like rodent infestations or exploding pipes. [knock wood]
So the backed up shower this week has been a bit of a surprise. More so the discovery that our house’s 50+ year pipes have about 50+ years worth of built up hair in them. Which decided to show up yesterday.
I’m just really thankful that N’s trip to Belgium didn’t pan out. I am terrified of plumbing, and this development has me severely skeeved out. So I’m leaving him to deal with the new snake he bought and the plumber he eventually called when it became apparent that 50 years of hairstory was too much for him on his own.
