Drying & Dryer


Well after almost a week of rain (yeah all you non-So Cal folks just can't relate)  : )  we are finally seeing the sun rise and hope to have the saturated ground dry out.  The unofficial information I saw for our area is over 13-inches of rain in less than 7-days, so we got our annual rainfall in one week.  Although we are thankful for the rain, it would have been better being spread out over a longer period of time.


Last night Lynda started the dryer and heard a "clunk" and then the drum stopped turning.  The belt broke and the idler pulley looks like it exploded! (well maybe just fell a part - but exploded sounds more exciting).  I (Kevin) head out soon with Cameron and Hannah to pick up the parts which they have on hold for me since I was able to call them 15-minutes prior to their closing last night.  Our afternoon will now consist of fixing the dryer and a conference call with our FTIA coordinator and travel partners - two other families that we have only met through e-mail and blogs.

Only 2-days until Christmas and 5-days until we head out to China!!!
