Real Estate Safety
The National Association of Realtors puts out a series of informational videos that are very helpful for both those in the industry as well as potential buyers and sellers. This one about safety is one that I think is good to watch because sometimes we don't understand why an agent does something they do or asks us to do something... realize it isn't about making things difficult for you, it's about keeping you safe and keeping us safe!

Eventually, we had to call not one, but two plumbers to get the issue totally fixed, because it turned out we had a level 5.
The stuff coming out of our drain pipe literally looked just like the stuff in this picture:
Makes you want mashed potatoes, right?
And I won't even tell you how vile it smelled. Thank the Good Lord for my wife's stash of essential oils and multiple diffusers!
Now, our problem was pretty serious, and one that had been building up (literally) for decades. Long before we moved into the house this issue existed down the drain (HA!). And the first plumber who used his auger really was a big help in giving us an understanding of what was happening and getting us on the path to clear pipes.
