Latest news is that we have had no hot water since Saturday. Plumber is coming tomorrow. One hopes he will be able to replace the thermostat / heating element / whatis and that the new thermostat / heating element / whatis that he installs will heat the water. And that I can finally take a shower.
The good news is that the knitting is going fine and that Smokey kinda likes the challenge of dealing with everything Mother Nature is throwing at us.
