Awoke to the sound of dripping coming from my garage. The garage floor is wet, the drips are coming from the attic door of the garage. my hot water heater is up there but my gas is off and we havent used it in a while. the weather is is getting pretty cold, was about to have the gas cut back on this monday. the temp outside is about 39. what could this be i am afraid to open the attic door. any ideas? :confused:

Could be anything. Bottom of water heater rusted out, supply for water heater leaking. If this is over your head (pun intended) call your plumber.

DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR. Wait until the water heater falls through the ceiling. LOL.

Of course you have to open the door, because until you do there is ABSOLUTELY no way to tell where the water is coming from, or how serious it is, OR how much damage has been done already.

From your fear of opening the door, I hope whoever comes has a whip and a chair to repel whatever is living behind it.
