We got home today and found this note from Washington Gas informing us that our service was off because a line had been damaged across the street (presumably amid the home building in the neighborhood).

When the power goes out, they just turn it back on when they fix the problem. Apparently when gas gets shut off, they don’t just turn it back on when they’re done. I think it has something to do with the fact that gas can explode. Go figure.

Anyway, Melissa got a hold of the company while I did a few errands, a guy came out and hooked everything back up and made sure the heater worked, and now we’re good-to-go. It was a big, goofy waste of time really.
