If you do try to move it, move the grass and dirt it would hit first, otherwise you'll be pulling against at least 3x the force, dirt doesn't like to compress.

Be really careful laying down open poison/traps, you don't want your or the neighbors' pets getting into it.

You can also remove the screw holding down the other handle and use the same handle on both.

Step 1, get rid of the animals so this doesn't occur again. I suggest a 12 ga.

comment How can I work around a broken faucet handle?
That is the stem, but looking at your pictures it appears the faucets are 1/4 turns. So if you can turn it more that 1/4 of a turn and not get water, you need to turn it the other way. If the other way doesn't work you'll need to replace it, because that's all the knob/handle would do. You may have loosened it and need to turn it back to where it was to start. Guessing from photo on the 1/4 turn, if they aren't you may need to just turn more or try the other way.

comment How should I fill the gap between window trim and walls?
If you do use foam insulation, the foam will expand and can cause issues opening the window. The link provided is Great Stuff's least expanding one designed around this issue but I'd still fill the depth of it in with multiple layers.

comment What are the three copper connections to my water heater?
A picture, or a few, would help immensely. You'll have to make links as a new user and someone will edit and embed them for you.

comment Are alternative roofing types, such as rubber roll, usable for a typical residential sloped roof?
I have that over my car port, roofers came in a laid foam down first because it was a flat roof and laid strips down directly over that. Used a heat gun to make the seals. Mine came w/ 10 yr warranty, I'm about 2 yrs in. The foam and rubber are more than though enough for wet leaves to sit on for a few months and my weight when I go to sweep them off. Had a ~1" branch come down and puncture it (which apparently wasn't covered) they wanted a few hundreds buck so I just filled it with silicone.

comment Ever had LED bulbs cause AFCI tripping?
All GU10 I know is 110/120v so 5W @ 110V is ~.05 Amp. So 1/20 Amp tripping a 15? Amp breaker is a problem.

comment Can I use indoor Romex in buried outdoor conduit?
Also, Romex® is a brand name and trademark of Southwire (Like saying Kleenex® or Jet Ski®.) Currently the Romex® line is exclusively NM(mostly -B) intended for indoor applications, it has become the go to word to describe all NM-B in general discussions.
