Another Snow Day  
After taking a look at the street in front of the house, and recalling the up-and-down hills on the bus route before it gets here (along with the fact that the bus never showed up at all last time after a smaller snowfall). I decided to call in and stay home.

This time I had enough warning not to set the coffeepot timer, and just left it set up to turn on manually when I was finally ready to wake up for good.

Mostly, I've been systematically re-washing a bunch of T-shirts. There was a problem with the washer that caused it to deposit some kind of white residue (probably soap), which is a problem for black T-shirts; rejiggering the drainage line and cycling it with a gallon of vinegar seems to have fixed it. Just to be sure, I started each load with hot water and ran the hot water flow into a cup of (about half the suggested amount of) soap to get it properly dissolved, then switched to warm or cold water and let the tub fill before adding the laundry.

That's an excellent suggestion about the vinegar. My Michael wears a lot of black shirts.

We've been periodically doing the vinegar cleanse all along, but it had minimal effect until the main problem with the line was fixed.

What did that involve,just jiggling the line?

Partly jiggling the line, partly lifting it so it didn't have a portion that sagged below the level of the washer outlet.
