As in, hints of what may be instore as I own a home, but through my apartment.
First the stove goes, and I got a new one, thanks to the speedy action of my apartment manager. Now, I think my water heater has finally croaked. It didn't spring a leak (thank God), but the heating element I think went for it was running out of hot water last evening, and didn't rejuvinate overnight and is STILL cold so took a sponge bath. :-(
To be honest, I'm surprised it hadn't gone before now as who knows how old it actually is. Most electric hot water heaters tend to last between 10-15 years and I would not be surprised if it's closer to 15 years old. I did check the fuse, and they didn't seem to have popped so there is that.
What I discovered was I was using the sink for something, and didn't get both the hot and cold knobs turned off, and the hot was left running on a low stream, and when I discovered it over an hour later, it was tepid, but still had some residual warmth, now, it's just cold as it didn't rejuvinate overnight with fresh, hot water like it would normally.
I did a similar thing a couple of years ago, but in the bathroom in the shower, and that time, once I shut it off, it refilled with nice, hot water, no problem. Not this time though. :-(
So gotta call my manager and get her on the case to at least check it out and see what's up there, and replace if need be.
I'm sure they'll just put in a fresh one anyway. Probably would be doing so when I move out in any event due to age alone.
I have not noticed any rust/dirty color to the water so it could just be the heating element is blown.
So that is where my morning lies. Ended up chatting with Victor last night. He may make a friend, but is a pot user and does medibles, ie, pot you eat in food. We'll see, we might get together this evening, if he can get out of choir practice, otherwise, the weekend.
I'm still on to meet Riley at Northgate Mall Saturday evening.
So that's that, and the second Beatles CD is done and sounds great. I spent time ripping Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, well, selections from it, and still need to record a few tracks from the White Album (vinyl) and then I can commence with the rest of the CD's for this project.
Sooo... That is how my Thursday is going, so far.
Hope to hear from my mortgage lender on when the down payment assistance restarts. I hope it's next week, so I can resume the house hunt.
