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.

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
