Spring break is still months away, but that is the sort of break you want. The kind you want to skip is the one that has to do with your garage.
It starts like this: A tremendous, gunshot-like bang will emanate from the garage. Likely, you and everyone inside the home will jump and flinch, but once you recover you will head to the garage. There, you will fail to easily see the source of the blast. Yet, the next time you try to leave home via the garage door, you’ll realize just what made that horrific ruckus. You will see that it was the lifting spring required to open the door that made that noise when it snapped in two!
