Do you have an expansion tank tank in the line leading into water heater? If not what is happening is that the water is no longer allowed to go back into the city supply. You said that you had turned it off while you left so the water heats up and has no place to go so the preasure/ temperature P/T valve opens and lets out the excess water from the expanded supply (heater water) that has no where else to go. It used to be that the extra expanded water just backed up into the supply pipe and back into the main. That is no longer possible in most places by the National Plumbing code. The answer may be to install the expansion tank into the incoming line. You can see then now at all hardware stores where water heaters are sold.
