There is an upside to not having water: No leaks!!!
The other advantage is that I can tackle plumbing work I would normally try to finish in one day, which puts a lot pressure on me, raises the stress level, and keeps vodka makers and liquor stores alive.
One such project is the water heater. I already explained to you what needs to be done, and today I started doing it. First I had to remove the water from the water tank ...
... 40 gallons of water, hmm, not sure what to do with it, maybe flush it down the toilet ... ;-)
After the water heater was empty I moved it aside to pour some concrete underneath so the floor got more level. And that's pretty much where I left off, no stress, no aggravation, and no martini.
