Drawing A Bath
There was indeed no hot water on Saturday. Although there are some places where you can have a reasonably comfortable shower with just the cold water from the tap, Toronto in the spring does not appear to be one of them. The temperature was somewhere between fridgid and nearly solid.
I resorted to the old fashioned method of heating water on the stove... although I threw in an electric kettle and the stove didn't require any wood. ;)
After three full kettles, two medium pots, and one large pot of water... the bath was "bearable". Bearable enough, at least, that I gave up carrying nearly-boiling water up a flight of stairs. There's only so much danger I want to risk in the morning before bathing.
Let's just say it was a *quick* bath.
