Hot water!

The plumber finally got to us, and zip-zip, the new water heater is online!

It’s effectively a mini normal electric water heater, with a 3.85 gal tank. He installed it so we can completely remove it, dump it, and store it where it won’t freeze. Yippee!

Now, we have to get the electrician over to install its own leetle plug, but for now, we’re using an extension cord and walking with our feet held high.

I won’t get my first hot shower, however, until after I get more painting, etc finished this afternoon. Ah, well!

    nothing enlightening to say. Just killing some time at the airport 🙂

    Better shower with a friend to save water! Love the contrast between the new and shiny and the old reliable Canada Dry box. Sounds like a great convenience too.

    Shower’s awfully teeny for collective showering. Yes, the Green Cottage operates with a mix of technologies….

    So do tell, how was the hot water?

    “A mix of technologies” is quite the understatement!

    I liked that old box too. Reminded me of an old Dewar’s box (scotch?) that kicked around here throughout my childhood. Actually, it could still be around somewhere. 😉
