Stouffville Strawberry Festival for us. After my failed attempt to diagnose the problem I had high hopes he could set it right...
They were quickly dashed when he showed me where the casing was irreperably cracked.
In situations like these my mother would say, "these things are sent to try us," and then expect us to carry on despite. So, I bailed out the dishwasher, cleared the trap, reset it, loaded it up, and it's running again now in hopes that the problem is solved... Knock on wood.
The strawberries are down in the chest freezer now, and I've laid in a couple of big jugs of spring water for pickling tomorrow, and the asparagus and rhubarb are in water to keep them crisp and fresh. It feels like progress, so I'm going to put the challenges of the day behind me and chalk it up as a win.
