$%^@@@*&$#%###$#$ Murphy !!!,

It's been a long winter...
My local DPW department has been very diligent and very generous with salt and sand.
It's not only on the Land Rover, but it been thrown on the front of the house that's closest to the road.

It finally warmed up enough that I could do something about it.
A "quick hit" with my pressure washer would solve both.
I dragged it out of the basement, found and connected the supply hose, connected the wand to the pressure side, plugged it in, hit the switch, and water began to flow.

Unfortunately, it was not flowing from the nozzle, but from a split in the pressure hose that wasn't there when I put it away last fall !!!

So much for a simple task.
As a home owner, there's always another - I'm never bored.
But now, there's one new one - a trip to the orange or blue guy to buy a new hose and then a dissection of my machine to connect it internally.
... and oh yes of course, I will have to make sure that all of the fittings are the same so that I can connect the wand to the business end.

I think it's time for a beer.
