just unclogged a downspout with a plumber's snake ama

@mastodad buying the 25-foot snake might have been overkill for this job, but it will come in handy later. I spent maybe 10 minutes up on the gutter.

@mastodad my front corner downspout had wet packed maple seeds inside the elbow piece that were growing seedlings. One of my rear downspouts just had dried maple seeds over it, so it was a matter of just scooping and sweeping. I was bummed that I didn't need the snake for that one.


@mastodad just glad that the next heavy rain won't lead to embarrassing waterfalls coming from my gutters
