We were already soaked at the kickoff of our regular Friday night football game last night. See the video below. Notice how Coach is tucked on away on the bleachers (smart). Berkeley scored a touchdown just a few minutes after the kickoff, and we left a few seconds after that. We are lightweights.
Our washing machine has been acting up, and we had already resolved to buy a new one. This morning, though, I did a web search and discovered that the machine's drain filter might be clogged. To get to the drain, I was convinced that we needed to take the dryer out of the way, which means that I would need to ask Cheryl for some help. And so we struggled with it, in a very tight space, until the dryer was on the floor in front of the washer.
But then another web search told me that the washer's filter was actually in front of the washer (not in back), so we had to wrestle the dryer back on top of the washer. Fun.
I took off the front cover, removed the filter and saw this mass of black shiny stuff--no wonder the water wouldn't drain. Lesson learned: take the poop bags out of your pocket before washing clothes.
