Running hot and cold

29may2010: Last night, when I tried to shower, I discovered that we didn't have any hot water. It is not entirely clear how long it's been on the fritz, because we had some sweltering days this week. My previous shower had been deliberately and gratifyingly rather cold.

In any case, the repairman came out today and fixed it. It took him longer to find our house than to actually repair the hot water heater.

When I told Cristyn that the problem had been with the thermocouple, she replied, "Oh, like in Star Wars." I hadn't made the connection, and smiled with geeky admiration. I guess our house is now ready to run Imperial blockades. [Cue the leitmotif for ablution and the sound of lasers firing in space.]
