The Cross House
WEDNESDAY: Radiator pipe in parlor is found to be leaking. Water has damaged finished floor. Ross unhappy.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Around 11PM, Ross has visions of the leaking pipe bursting and destroying the house. Ross struggles NOT to drive back to the house and make sure all is well. A fitful sleep ensues.
THURSDAY MORNING: Ross texts Justin, who was scheduled to arrive at Cross House at 8AM: “Is the house OK?” Ross stares and stares and stares at iPhone until Justin replies: “Yep.” Ross breathes again.
THURSDAY AFTERNOON: After radiator system is shut down and drained, the damaged radiator is disconnected, and the issue is resolved. The bad radiator is then reconnected, system re-filled with water, and boilers started again. And…and…all is well. No leaks. No problems. It is like yesterday did not happen. Save the damaged flooring. Ross, nonetheless, is quite happy.
