This weekend was interesting. We were supposed to be up at my parent's cabin celebrating Father's Day but we ended up spending most of the time stuck at home. Friday night, we discovered half the floor of the basement was wet from a leak in the hot water heater. It could have been a lot worse. The basement isn't finished and most of the stuff we have stored on the wet side was up on tables and chairs. So, little damage but lots of dusty, wet, cobwebby mess and, of course, the expense of replacing the water heater. Saturday afternoon, Alan sprained his ankle playing basketball. He spent a good part of today sitting in urgent care and now is hobbling around as little as possible. I rented a couple of movies and we pretty much stayed put this evening. Anybody have any advice on hot water heaters?
