tqc, my water heater is leaking. it's 20 years old and it's all rusted out at the bottom. i came home from school to take a shower this morning and there's not tons of water, but we are well beyond the dribbling leak stage. it hasn't flooded the bathroom yet but it was sure trying to. and i've cut the power to it at the breaker. i see the water shutoff on top but mom said to leave it alone in case it's rusted too.
what would have happened if i hadn't come home today, o wise tqc? if it lost too much water could it have overheated and burned down the house?
will you please tell me something to cheer me up? i'm having a really crappy day.
