Not only is it raining "cats and dogs" today, but I woke up this morning to find an inch or so of water under my kitchen sink. "This is not a good sign," I told Nels. Of course, he was curious as to why I was removing most of the stuff and sopping up the water. I thought about calling my boss to let her know I would be taking the day off, but then decided to try to handle the problem from my workplace.
Getting to work – feeling a bit frazzled – I had an inspiration: the son-in-law of one of my former co-workers is a plumber. Why not call him? What a blessing that call turned out to be. Not only could he come to fix it today, but he was in the area. He came by my office and got my house keys and then called moments ago to tell me the disposal needs to be replaced. He’s going to purchase a new disposal, install it, and come back to the office with my keys and pick up his check. This is a man I trust, and I am so thankful all of this could be taken care of while I was at work.
Note: the rain is still falling, and by tomorrow, it may have changed into sleet and snow—from 4 to 6 inches is the prediction!
