Cold start

1 Comment

A cold start to the morning. Woke to no hot water in the house due to failed circuit breaker. I have replaced hot water heaters but I don’t mess with electrical panels. Now the question is do I live with a cold shower today and tomorrow and pay the non-emergency rate on the weekday or do I spend a few hundred more on service now?

Well, I took that first cold shower. Not all that bad but not my preference. Now if my better half can cope without killing me for this decision to delay then we are good. We do have an insta-hot unit in our kitchen so maybe I’ll fill a sprinkling can full of the warm water and at least let her wash her hair with warmth.

Never take a shower for granted, be it cold or warm. I’m guessing there are many that don’t get either.

I guess if I want to get warm I can just step outside today. And that I will be doing with some old friends. Let’s hope the weekend gets back on a good track with that event.

Random Thoughts of the Morning

  • Who the governor of your state is, just became much more important.
  • I’d like to hit triple digits in new images taken today.
  • We became a disposable society when we lost the desire to fix things.
  • I hear some roads calling my name today so almost time to put the top down.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.

One thought on “Cold start

  1. Temporary hot water, stretch hose out into sunlight. Turn nozzle off and hose valve on. In no time there will be some hot water awaiting you, spray into 5 gallon bucket and haul to shower area. Kinda primative, but so are you.
