Water heater busted yesterday, which equals water all over the garage, hallway to the garage, and seepage into the neighbor's garage.
First contractor - HUGELY expensive. Second contractor - NEVER calls back. Purchase new heater from big-name store - ROYAL runaround about getting out here to install the @!&$*^ thing.
Say hello to Mom with the proverbial steam coming out of her ears, which yes, is the only hot water you will find around this place.
Oh, and H went for jury duty today and yep, they picked him. Out until at least Tuesday. Hope he wasn't looking for a hot shower to go to court.
