11:30: Going to bed a little earlier than normal

11:31: Set alarm system.

11:32: Security check, notice front porch door is unlatched. Disarm alarm, unlock door, go out on porch, smell faint scent of gas. Hmmmm.

11:33: Consider calling 911, but figure I should check the property first.

11:36: Parka, furry hat, boots and gloves. Go out on back porch, no scent of gas. Go in backyard, no scent of gas. Go over to gas meter, yup, a faint leak, somewhere near.., near the shut off valve.

11:40: On phone to gas company. Gas company sends emergency tech.

12:15: No tech yet. Plow comes down street, pushes whole fucking street on my sidewalk, one foot thick, giant snow boulders, one boulder the size of a freezer.

12:30: Shoveling. Might as well shovel while waiting for gas tech. Below zero now, frosty beard.

1:45: Gas tech arrives. Locates faint leak at the shut off valve, calls in repair crew for tomorrow. No problems since the leak is outside and small.

2:10: Finish shoveling, get inside, open beer, consider just staying up and going to work.

3:00: Scratching my ass, typing into LJ, wondering if it will eat the post. Hit Ctrl + a, hit Ctrl + c.

Well, that is a whole load of suck! Yay for not blowing up your house though!

It's always a good day when you manage not to get blown up.
