BANG! (as predicted)

A few months ago I had someone from the garage door service company come out and replace broken rollers on our garage door. He told me that those roller wheels ear out and need to be replaced every ~5 years or so, and the house is ~5 years old. I asked him what the next thing to go would be, he told me it would be the big spring above the door (in the next 5 years), “and when it goes, you’ll need 3 or 4 guys to help you get it open.”

Last night after I got back from playing volleyball and hit the button to close the garage door, I heard a loud BANG! Sure enough, the spring broke and there is no way I can raise that door on my own.

At least I knew it was coming…
