Wednesday night I stayed up to late thanks to the Bruins and their triple overtime. (I did not make it to the 3rd OT - I thought I'd take a nap during the intermission and didn't wake up until I heard the sirens from the Blackhawks scoring.) So last night because I was beyond tired J sent me to bed early - which was most appreciated until.... J came in at 10:10pm not ready for bed but to tell me that the hot water heater just blew! The water was pouring out of it into our garage. J got to it not 5 minutes after it blew so the water damage was minimal. We got the gas and the water shut off pretty quickly and worked on getting the water out of the garage.
When I got out to the garage J told me to be careful of the spider - he wasn't sure if it was dead or not. Turns out it was alive and it was not an ordinary spider...it was a TARANTULA!! He was small and almost cute but there was no denying that he was a tarantula. After a few minutes of trying to get him to leave on his own J relocated him to our flower garden.
So today we have the plumber coming out to replace the hot water heater...the amount of money we could be paying in fees to the city is insane. It's almost half of the total quote we received from the plumber!!
I leave you with a super short video of the hot water heater...
