I dislike the time of year when the pipes have been cold long enough that you’ve absolutely no hope of warm water in the thirty-odd seconds it takes for a routine wash of the hands, and knowing you haven’t got it in you to waste the water necessary to get to said warm water, you must grit your back teeth, thrust your hands forward and deal with the biting cold as best you can.
*sighs* I’m definitely going with one of those flashy new instantaneous water heaters when this old gas clunker finally fizzles out. Maybe get one of the faucet mount water heaters as well. Oh to have warm water year-round. The wonder!
