It’s been snowing or sleeting here pretty much non-stop since six last night. It’s coming down at a fair clip now, and our footsteps on the walk we made at six tonight were erased an hour later. E and her dad holed up in the third floor studio for all parts of the day that weren’t spent chauffeuring “Princess Preggo” around town to work and meetings. At some point in the day E was looking out of the back window at the snow on the roof below and asked what the white vent pipe was. Diagrams followed. This was the Vent Stack 101 as presented to me this evening. The squiggles down the side are “more important information about vents in cursive“. Next time you talk to her, ask about the importance of the p-trap. She’s got answers for you. And she might have another stay-at-home day tomorrow…on the agenda? HVAC systems.
