State of war

A state of war now exists between the rats and me.

The upstairs rats are adorable pets for the wife & kids, but the downstairs rats are destructive beyond belief.

A couple of days ago I noticed water on my basement floor. I quickly figured out that it was coming from the condensate pump on the furnace. After making a call and finding out it was $99 for a tech to come out, I took a closer look at the pump. The drain tube leading from the furnace to the pump had been chewed away above the pump, no doubt by a varmint looking for a water supply. It was an easy repair, and I had the right tube on hand.

As Bugs Bunny (and Groucho Marx) was known to say, "Of course, you know, this means war."
