A few weeks ago, my mother told me that I should get some of my stuff up off the basement floor (where the trains are) and my very expensive woodworking tools, so I picked up cords that were not used, but thought nothing else of it. Oh yea, the reason, we realized our water heater is old and could go out like the last one at any time, last time there was quite a wet mess. So anyway, lo and behold, tonight, it went out. Luckily we caught it and I could drain it in time. Man, were going on vacation next week and if it happened then, no doubt it, the benchwork would be in trouble. Pretty boring thread, my mind just went straight to TRAINS! when it happened, so I though it was worth mention.
