If you can turn the gas on yourself- just do it and then turn it back off before they show up on monday.


Wan't to make sure its not theft of services or something.


Well if they turned it off at the street, which I'm guessing they did from what you said, then yeah I wouldn't turn it on. I assumed when you said your gas was off, it was due to some major construction or something :D


Heh...its not off at the street. Its off at the meter attached to my house. They didn't lock it.

You sure they didn't turn it off at both locations? I would think they would just as a precaution so right when they turn it on at the street they don't fill your house with gas from potential pilot light sources that are no longer lit in the case you're not home.

That said, I think the meter is still considered the property of the gas company even though it's attached to your house... but I'd give it a go and flip it on... if anything just to have the peace of mind of letter a wife have a hot shower (just so you don't have to hear about it :D), you could always turn it back off after you get your hot water tank filled with hot water :D
