We finally have gas again! I had a feeling that it wasn’t actually going to be turned back on and I was right. All our neighbors had gas again last night, but not us. Our meter is, apparently, different than everyone else’s and they had to do something to it to get gas to flow again. It took all of 30 seconds to fix, but you would have had to know what the problem was. And while the repairman was here, he lit the pilot under the hot water heater for me, so I didn’t even have to fool with it.
Now we can do things like wash dishes, do laundry, shower, and have heat!
