Okay, so I didn't get all my wood in. I have an excuse. Also an excuse for the short blog posting.
After a refreshing morning bath a few days ago, I noticed my well pump was running overtime. Not good, since it can overheat. So I go down there. Sure enough, it's way too hot. I go to shut it down manually, which involves reaching over it to the switch on the wall behind it.
And that's when it decided to explode.
