You guys want a good laugh?
So I get back from camping today, blow out the lines, bypass the water heater and pump in the pink antifreeze. Try my darndest to remove the anode, and head over to the forums to try and figure out how to get it off (looks like I might be buying/renting an impact wrench).
Talking to my wife on the phone (she's headed down to NC to see her parents) complaining about how I'm having trouble getting the , and she says:
"Aren't we taking it out again for Thanksgiving?"
Oh, and it's not supposed to be below freezing between now and Thanksgiving.
