Almost Went KABOOM

My girlfriend came over yesterday and we were on the front deck talking for a long time. Opened the door to go back inside and got hit by a strong smell of gas. Yelled to my girlfriend not to touch a light and went straight to the stove. The burner valve was on, I quickly turned it off, then opened the back door and more windows. Looking back I realize turning off the gas at the stove was stupid as it goes through the striker area that ignites it. All ended well but my heart skipped a few beats. Ordered knob locks, they will be here tomorrow. One of our cats must have done it.

That's crazy.

Same thing happened to me on Wed.

Jude says Vedder did it, I thought it was her.

30 years and that never happened.

 

Knob locks, huh?

Didn't know there was such a thing.

I told her to pull them off, she said no way.

Tell me about these locks - where'd you get them?

Yikes

 

Heard a story about a guy who stored his gas grill in the basement over the winter.  Pulling it up the exterior cellar steps for the first cookout of the spring and the bottle fell off and bounced down the concrete steps.

Valve is damaged and the bottle starts to spray out gas.

Ruhht Rohhh!

He runs to the back door - screems for the wife and kids to get out NOW!

They made it out before the gas found the hot water heater's pilot light.

 

Woof.

 

Lifted the whole house off the foundation and set it back down a bit crooked.  

 

Can you imagine?????

Does she blame Vedder for farts too?

Quick look.

There's the little wedgie things and the clear cover things.

What's best?

I didn't know there was such a thing till I Googled it. I bought the wedge type on Amazon, if that doesn't work I'll try the plastic. I survived a propane fire in my house when young, my uncle wasn't so lucky. Don't want to have another.
