Drain Backed UP!

Last night made my first trip down to the basement. Don't know why sooner! But noticed horrible smell. Sure enough the drain was backed up and cannot believe what I had to clean up. when the drain backs up, is it only from your drain or could it be your neighbors mess you have to clean up? It is raining and we needed the rain and now it won't stop. I called the drain man and feel bad he has to work in this mess. I at least cleaned the opening in the basement which was a shock. It must have happened sometime yesterday because I was down there night before. What an absolute mess. Someone said to pour Clorox down there once a month. Just st ar ted putting it into practice and now this happens. I do appreciate someone who can stop this from continuing to back up.

bet you been through this before, right? You described exactly what it looked like! Hope the toilet flushes it out in the drain. Too many have to use the pot. They don't want to mess with it. Since I find it it is up to me to take care of it. Such sweet considerate men.

Nope! And I think it's something I can live with out. I saw the inside of a septic tank once and that was close enough.

Good luck with getting it cleaned QUICKLY!!!!

OK, it has been a wonderful day so why am I having to vent? I'll tell you! I just got home from church & lunch with my parents & I had a huge box of halloween candy to get out of the trunk of my car. Well, I leaned in the trunk without making sure it was open all the way & whamed my head on the latch. I literally saw stars & black spots for about a miunte. Now I have a lump on the side of my head & a headache!!

Oh, I hate things like that. They hurt beyond any bounds of reasonableness. Time for everyone else to give you a lot of TLC.

Thankd pds & Snoop! I tried to take a nap but between the dog chasing the kitten, the phone ringing, the wind blowing the witch around on my front door, & the kid from down the stree coming & ringing the doorbell to see if TC could come out to play, it didn't happen! My head is feeling better though, it just hurts if I touch it now & the headache is just a dull pain.

One of my favorite groups is the Rolling Stones. DH bought tickets to their concert in November for my birthday. The concert was just cancelled.
