Go Check Your Oven.
Boy, did I make a major screwup tonight. I baked some fish and potato patties for supper. But I neglected to turn off the oven. I only just noticed it was still on a few minutes ago. We're in the middle of a heat wave here so having an oven on isn't the best thing when you're trying to cool off your house. I don't like the idea of the wasted electricity, but that will be made up for by my deciding not to use the oven for several days. But the real scary thought is what might have happened if I hadn't spotted the oven light still being on because of the kitchen lights being turned off. I have no idea how much longer it might have run before I noticed it.
