I woke up this morning to cold water.
Why, do you ask?
My hot water tank blew up. This not only is a great inconvenience in my daily ritual, but it also means that my plans for a trip to Victoria are cancelled. To compound the problem, I have a gas hot water tank, which I do not have the knowledge or skill set to deal with.
I've replaced electric tanks before. A little bit of plumbing, a bit of wiring, and poof! you are done. But gas? No way am I going near that. The possibility of explosion is too great.
I've got someone to come and deal with it, but they won't be here until tomorrow.
So until then, it's all cold showers.
It's like I'm back in high school all over again.
