So far we're at 1.35" for this storm, and Friday is supposed to be a nice day, before the next round of storms hits on Saturday.
And that's a good thing, as our 20+ year old water heater, which has been slooowly failing has finally decided to call it quits.
I'm not sure what "wears out" in a gas water heater, but this one is no longer heating the water, even though we've cranked up the thermostat on it to almost max.
I remember way back when I was a kid, that they'd "burn out", usually flooding the basement until somebody could valve off the water to it.
This one isn't leaking, and when our plumber friend was over here earlier this week, he tried draining it, and very little sediment came out, so apparently it isn't loaded up with gunk.
The new 45 gallon commercial grade heater gets delivered Thursday afternoon ($540....OUCH!), and our plumber friend and my wife's oldest son will swap it out. The place he ordered the new heater from will come and collect the old one, so that's a worry we won't have.
But in the meantime, we have barely tepid water to shower with.
Hot water on demand is one of those things you just take for granted, and when it goes away, life gets a little different.......
