So just a few days after returning home from our vacation, we were welcomed back by our hot water tank bursting. And when I say burst, I mean it was spewing all over the place at an alarming rate. I came home one evening after work to find Mojo acting a little strange. I figured maybe he really had to go to the bathroom or something so I hurried downstairs to the storage room to let the girls out of their pen. And after a few steps down I smelled something funny (I have a strange nose) and then a few steps later I heard what sounded like a powerful waterfall. And my heart jumped into my throat and I raced down those stairs faster than humanly possible. What I saw in the storage room terrified and devastated me. My sweet fur babies were being violently showered with water from the hot water tank. I immediately released them and checked that they were OK. Thankfully the tank had not been spewing for too long and it was ricocheting off the wall before it was hitting the girls so it wasn't too hot on their fuzzy little skin. Oh I felt awful. Then, after taking care of my babies I went into complete freak out mode and scrambled around trying to find the water shut off valve. Despite having used this water shut off valve before, I could not for the life of me find it. Yep, I'm cool, calm, and collected like that. So I left a frenzied voicemail for Ryan (he got a chuckle out of that) and then sprinted over to the neighbor's house, with no shoes and no coat in December, and requested immediate assistance. We got the water turned off and the dogs were fine so I was very thankful. This is what the storage room looked like. The pictures are kind of bad but basically there was some standing water on the floors. I didn't have the heart to get a picture of China and Peanut because I felt SO awful.
