Impending Doom – Project 365 for January 24

I’ve known for a while that the inlet pipe on the water heater needed attention.  It was one of those ‘one of those days’ jobs.  This evening while hanging with the family, my medic sense began to tingle.  Something was wrong.

A short investigation revealed a puddle on the utility room floor and this:

In closeup and with good lighting, it has a certain beauty.  Still, my plumber friend will be excising this tumor for me tomorrow.  Until then, the valves are shut off.

    There is a certain ectoplasmic charm, I suppose. IMO, wouldn’t exactly consider the word “beauty” to be applicable…
