Hot Water Heater Disaster.

Well...it all started when we came home from church last night. When we entered our driveway we saw water everywhere. Of course that brought out the question of " Where is that coming from?". We discovered when we walked into the house that the hot water heaters valve had been broke off. Of whole downstairs was about 4 tpo 5 inches under water. A lot of my brothers stuff got ruined. When our landlord came over to see what had happened........he discovered that the valve cover had been chewed off by my mom's dog Addie. There was Michelle, my mom, our landlord and I standing a different spots with brooms sweeping out the water that just kept coming back into the house. Then about 1 1/2 later our landlord remembers...OH YEAH..I have a shopvac at the house let me go and get it! While he went to get the shopvac we still kept sweeping in hopes that the water would stay out. Needless to say that did not work. After our landlord returned with the vac..my mom got to work on getting all the water up. As soon as I got up this morning I went to work with my mom on tackling Ronnie's room. That it self was a very hard and long job. Ronnie's room is in the basement, so when we got to work moving stuff to finish cleaning we discovered that my brother was living with spiders, scorpions, millipedes and a baby snake!!!! I was having a fit when I saw all the things that we found. Thankfully they all drowned in the water!!!! That was how our day yesterday and some of today went. It is all fixed now. :) Well....How is everyone else today? The weather is really cold here. I am about to freeze! Let us know what it's like where you are at!!

No. We are very thankful for that. We still have no hot water and it looks as though we are gonna have to get a new water heater. I am dying for a shower right now too!

It was freezing here all day too! Although that's not too suprising since we don't live that far apart (at least in the same state anyway!) Well I hope your having a good day, besides your water desaster, LOL! Our electricty went out this morning so we didn't do the pumpkin today. I am going to try again tomorrow!!
