I'd say hit the showers, but it seem kind of redundant at this point.

I did that once. Water was not hot but it blew the anode rod out of my hand and covered me along with the water in little bits of the crusty white stuff that was on the rod.

Skyhawk, I definitely can relate, but my mental lapse moment was in freezing temps. We'll have to compare notes. LOL

I did that once, the water was not hot fortunately. I won't do that again as I am a fast learner.

I love the fact that people on this forum are willing to share their "oops"! An image is worth a thousand words. Although I don't know if it will make me remember not do this or whether I will think of you all with a stupid grin and headshake when I do it myself.
