Can You Say Angry?…

Or maybe… mad, affronted, annoyed, antagonized, bitter, chafed, choleric, convulsed, cross, displeased, enraged, exacerbated, exasperated, ferocious, fierce, fiery, fuming, furious, galled, hateful, heated, hot, huffy, ill-tempered, impassioned, incensed, indignant, inflamed, infuriated, irascible, irate, ireful, irritable, irritated, nettled, offended, outraged, piqued, provoked, raging, resentful, riled, sore, splenetic, storming, sulky, sullen, turbulent, uptight, vexed, wrathful. Or how about hot under the collar, up in arms, in high dudgeon, foaming at the mouth, doing a slow burn, steamed up, in a lather, fit to be tied, seeing red, bent out of shape, ticked off. Just pick whichever seems to express the most anger and that’s what I was. I won’t even go into a description now and just post this picture again…

Mom and Sofia were upstairs taking a shower and a bath respectively and I was trimming some more of these shallow bowls…

when I got up to get a drink of water and walked out of the studio to see that the downstairs commode had overflowed and my snake adventure was about to begin again. If you recall I just did this on November 12th and it hasn’t even been a month. The main difference this time is that it was 38 degrees out and pouring rain. At this rate I will have to do it 5 more times before it’s warm enough to dig it all up and fix it for good and I’m already on a first name basis with the rental guy at Home Depot. I was foaming at the mouth and spitting tacks… pissed.

    Double $%%%^ indeed! Knew when I saw the photo of the snake that things were in the crapper… On the bright side, those shallow bowls are lovely!

    …well the bowls are lovely!

    We had an issue with our place in Girdwood and ended up using some stuff called “Mule Kick” which was some kick@ss (no pun intended) stuff. It’s all fixed now, but pretty gross when the skanky water backed up the floor drain in the sauna…aaaaccck!

    We finally had to resort to a power router hired by a Pipe & Drain company that blasted through an ancient grease clog from the rental apartment…

    My favorite the the run of explatives that Chevy Chase blurts in the movie “Christmas Vacation” when he realizes his bonus is a subscription to the jelly of the month club. 😦 Sorry the crapper is on the blink.
    Those bowl bottoms are really nice.

    Well, crud. I’m sorry about your commode. On a brighter note, raining and 38 degrees is a better time to fix it than say, blizzarding and 9 degrees. That’s what we’re experiencing in Iowa. 😀

    That looks suspiciously like an exposed drive belt on that thing… would be forbidden here.
    Take care, if it jams in the pipe the top end can get dangerous.

    (though I expect you’ve already figured it out).

    If it’s really roots in the drain, this won’t clear them, it’ll make a way through, so the drain will empty until next time. You can get machines with root cutters on the end, or a big high pressure jetter will root-cut, I still think you need a camera down the pipe to be sure what the true cause is.

    Good luck!
