Here we go again...after last night's downpours, Bob wasn't able to get the garage door opener to work this morning (he came home around 7 pm yesterday in a torrential rain but the door did open for him). He couldn't find the reset button on the new GFCI, so I have no idea how he was able to raise the door and keep it up long enough to get his car out. He didn't tell me, of course, till tonight (!!!). Had he told me right away this morning, I could have thrown on some shoes and shown him how to reset the GFCI and re-engage the opener on its track. The electrician is flabbergasted: new wiring, with no breaks; new conduits sealed with copious amounts of "pipe dope;" new breaker in the basement and new GFCI in the garage (both buttons are white, which is why Bob couldn't figure out how to reset it, as the old button was red for reset and black for test). He will come out tomorrow to try to figure out what happened--but if it's dried out he will have to wait for more rain. He will remedy the problem free of charge, of course. And more rain we will get, starting perhaps tomorrow night, Mon. for sure. And starting Mon. night they're predicting another torrential storm with high winds, time and again all week...as the weatherman put it "like 'Groundhog Day." We got a little bit of water in the basement right under the sump pump (which means I have to call the plumber too--unless there's just so much a sump pump can do, and at some point flooding is inevitable).
As of 10pm tonight, Bob was still working and expects tomorrow will be the same--so it looks like this weekend will have been a bad one at Little Company of Mary (even though the city & state's infection & death metrics are going down, that ghetto-centric hospital is the canary in a coal mine because so many of its patients are minority people in essential jobs whose dwellings are too small for social distancing).
And once again, morons are setting off large firecrackers (M-80s, cherry bombs, etc.) well into the night. It's happening all over the city and in NYC too. I understand people are bored and frustrated, but this is insane. At least my cats are sound sleepers and I have earplugs. (Hate to get socio-political here, but I guess one mark of white privilege is that we know it's pyrotechnics and not gunfire--though last week a barista/college student was shot to death while walking home in decidedly middle-class West Rogers Park).
Diagnosed at 64 on routine annual mammo, no lump. OncotypeDX 16. I cried because I had no shoes...but then again, I won’t get blisters....
