Macbeth the Usurper

Water Heater Pt3

The water heater is in. All is good. The plummers had to do another $400 in work. (Plummers *are* expensive. Now I know what people mean.) They have one small thing left to do, but the part is back-ordered. They blame Katrina.

My Beautiful Water Heater

The heater, by default, generated 130 degree water. That's too hot for me. I adjusted it down to 123 degrees. (Meat thermometers are handy for such things.) I'll tweak it down a few more degrees tonight.

This is all good, as we head off this weekend to Connecticut for a wedding. I do not need to live in fear that my water heater will explode.

Housing Shock

I'm looking at the property listings for my area. They are +50k over the last time that I looked, maybe more. This is STUPID.

I soooo much want this bubble to burst.
