How long is the snake? 15 feet
Did you snake past the disposal? I used the snake from under the sink for
about 10 feet.
Did it start slowing down before it got so slow. About a day or two.

How about other drains in your home; any problems? No, not at all.

Since my original post, I unscrewed the pipe going to the disposal from
under the sink. There isn't anything in it. And the disposal runs
normally---no weird sounds. After overnight, it takes awhile for the water
to reach the sink...probably about 30 seconds. Maybe the clog is farther
than my snake. And I know nothing bizarre went down there like a rag.
Geezzz, I hope the plumber can come ASAP. Not being able to use the kitchen
sink really sucks. It's the little things you know.
