The start of my 2012 Farm Chicks weekend did not start out as planned. Yesterday, I received a phone call from one of our neighbors, who informed me that our hot water heater was spewing water out and around our the side of our home. Certainly not the phone call you want to receive when you are 240 miles away from home.
The aforementioned neighbor was nice enough to shut off our water and switch off the electricity to the unit before any major damage could be done. What they couldn't shut off. was the cost of a plumber and having the hot water heater being replaced by special order and priority shipping, to keep the inconvenience of no hot water to a minimum.
