Last night I went to bed at about 1:00 AM. Sometime during the night, I awoke and heard the heater running. I thought that it must be cold outside for it to be running that late. It turns out, it wasn’t the furnace. Sometime after I crashed, the hose to the washing machine burst and cold water sprayed out for the rest of the night. The half-bath, laundry room, kitchen and about a third of the garage are under water. I’m glad I have insurance, but I really needed to be at the office this morning. I really needed to not be paying out a deductible. Every towel I own is spread through the kitchen to stop the river. I was able to turn off the water at the washing machine, so now am waiting for the clean-up specialists that my insurance company uses. Sigh!
ps My brother (of butt-crack pants fame) came over and replaced the hoses to the washing machine. One of the hoses was so firmly attached to the spigot that he used a hack saw to get it off. My nice insurance adjuster said he would pay for the parts and the work. It’s going on noon and the clean-up specialists are still here. Sigh!
