Cue the Fat Lady
The power is on.
The phone works.
We have a DSL connection.
Life is good.
We finished cutting back the drywall and pulling out insulation this morning. In the middle of that, one sump pump gave up the ghost and had to be replaced. The required two trips to the hardware store. We made a third trip to buy a dehumidifier, which is now happily sucking moisture from the air.
The A/C is running. I consider that a blessing although I am worried about whether the pump that moves the water from the condenser is still working. The last thing I want in the basement now is another puddle.
It looks like the sofa is shot. Professional and amateur opinion is that it is irredeemable.
