Friday at 5:30 am, and was greeted by this sight.
I turned and yelled in the door. COME HERE! Sheetrock is Down. During the storm filled night, a whole sheet fell from the garage ceiling onto the washer/dryer. Nothing was damaged but what a mess. It seems when they named it Sheetrock, they meant it is literally a sheet of rock. The thing weighed at least 100 pounds.
As we worked for over an hour cleaning up the mess, we tried to figure out why it just fell. no leaks nothing wrong, it just fell.
Bob and I stood it on end, he held the back side 2 inches off the ground, I could not lift my end, but was able to drag it out to the curb, leaving a long white mark on the driveway. We broke it up and put the pieces in the big trash receptacle.
With brush and dust pan, I cleaned off washer/dryer/water heater and resorted to a paint brush to get the stuff out of the small spaces while bob swept the floors.
All day long we talked about WHY?
2 days later I remembered The 180 pound Plumber on the roof with the 100 pound Snake and that the snake was stuck and for over an hour he rattled the house and foundation AND roof trying to get it out.
At least now we know WHY...
below the red shape over the washer is the vent pipe to washer, the one in the corner is to the drains and the one the snake was Stuck In...Imagine a giant blender shaking the roof and foundations and there you have the answer....
On the good news side. we found it when I went out to put poop in my car..
Just so you know, Big Boy had a Vet appointment at 9 am which requires a SAMPLE to be tested and since in the past I have been known to Leave It On the Counter, I wanted to put it in the car
Yes! it was sealed in a baggie. I did remember that.
Garage sheetrock fell on washer/dryer
Made a huge heavy mess

Nothing was damaged, Roof is fine.
Caused by shake, rattle and roll of Plumbers Snake 3 days before.
