Tuesday Time to Tackle: Water Heater Woes

Sunday morning, I noticed a small wet spot in the hallway.  It confused me.  Drexel sleeps in a crate, and he is housebroken.  The ceiling was dry, so the spot wasn't due to water dripping from above.  I got a towel to dry the carpet.  No matter how much I stomped on the towel, I kept drawing up water. 

Finally, as I went into the laundry room to get another towel, I noticed that the laundry room floor was a bit wet, too--right under the water heater.  

Fortunately, we have two water heaters, so half of the house still had hot water.  Apparently the water heaters are in sync, though, because the other water heater went out a few months ago, also on a Sunday.

So, yesterday John spent the afternoon installing a new water heater.  



Thanks for John, who is a terrific handyman, and thanks for hot water.

  2. You are just lucky you have a handy man on call that can take care of such situations! Much cheaper than a plumber!

  3. You are fortunate to have found the wet spot and to have a husband who can make the repairs without calling a plumber.

  6. You should talk to Sharon B. about this! She found a wet spot on her carpet and it turned into a major thing...pipe broken in the wall, carpet ruined, lots of fun!! I also remember many, many years ago when Terry was on a business trip that suddenly my garage was flooded!! (Thankfully our water heater is in the garage!!) I called the neighbor, Jim Golden, and he came down and helped me to shut it off and get things cleaned up. Can't remember getting the new one and getting it installed, but it's still there, so it must have happened!! ha ha!

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
