comment Direct Vent Water Heater Flue Exhaust
@scooter133, thanks for the link. I will share with the plumber. Sounds like this is the exact installation that is in place. My hunch is that wind eddy may have contributed to the downward draft and hoping that it was a freak combination of conditions.

@scooter133, the incoming air is coming from the top of these ducts. There are 2 water heaters - I would imaging that they serve dual intake (for oxygen to the pilot) and outgoing (for flue exhaust). I think you may be on to something with the exhaust being too close to the intake. They are designed to be vents

Thanks for the queries. @Tester101, Yes, these are natural gas water heaters. The windows do open, but we rarely do open them. The water heaters are Kenmore 40 gal. heaters.

comment Two Water Heaters - One off affecting the other?
Not sure about the plumbing..all I was told by the technician was that they are reliant on each other - so whatever that entails...I'll try taking a picture from just above the heaters. I did not close any valves - just turned the dial to OFF. Thanks.

comment What are ways to clean glass top ranges undergoing heavy use?
Thanks. I am a bit nervous about using blades on the cooktop, lest it causes scratching and irreversible damage.
