I woke up this morning to rain. Showers. There was a 40% chance, but what we're getting this morning may be it. According to Accuweather, sunshine will push the showers out of the picture sometime this afternoon. Temps are predicted to start their slow decline into autumn.
When I took my shower yesterday morning, I noticed that the hot water wasn't nearly as hot as normal, steam clouds were not rising around me. Rather than being hit with a sense of foreboding, I just said "shit." Like everything else in this world, hot water heaters have a life span that is always shorter than you are expecting. Most of them have warranties which expire after six years, there's a reason for this, gas water heaters, like man, have a life expectancy of 8 - 12 years. My lasted 11. Now, it might just be a circuit board, but the cost of installing a new one, including labor, is pricey as Hell. Instead of going that route, I'm having a new one installed this afternoon at a cost of $3000. I guess I'm going to have to skip my next couple bottles of wine.
Being the daring type, I attempted to bake a peach cobbler in a spring form pan yesterday, it didn't work out well for the cobbler.
