Beginning two days ago, my shower hot water supply does not get nearly
as hot as it used to. The sinks around the house seem be the same as
they always have (nice and hot), it's jsut the bathroom shower that
seems to have cooled down.
The shower in question happens to be at the opposite end of the house
from the water heater, and I keep the water tank temperature pretty
high. Any idea what may have caused the sudden reduction in hot water
Thanks in advance.

Alternatively, I guess there's a possibility of a flow restriction in
the last section of piping that supplies that particular shower, but
it would be way down on my lest of likely causes...
