No sooner do we get done with the “Earthquake of the Century”, and we’re facing the “Hurricane of the Century.”Â The battery that feeds my backup sump pump rendered itself into toxic waste in late June. I’ve been putting off replacing it until a job comes my way. Now I might have to do it sooner rather than than later. A battery is only fifty bucks, but the deductible on my homeowners policy is 20 times that. Better to buy the battery, when a pump is the only thing separating me from having a new indoor pool in the finished basement.
This could seriously interfere with my plans for smoking the Boston Butt. I know my dad reads sometimes, so Thursday is probably better than Friday now for the BBQ plans.
