Minor Disaster


We awoke yesterday morning to find a miniature geyser erupting in front of our house. Mrs. C went out first and found that a water main had broken. The repair crew said they would be shutting off our service soon so we both ran through the shower. By the time I threw on some clothes and ran downstairs the main valve had been shut off and the best of the show was over.

The water company crew knew what they were doing. After pumping out the flooded area they replaced a section of pipe, filled the hole and had our service restored by mid-afternoon.

Lucky for you that you didn't get a big sinkhole in the street.

Thank goodness for council services hey Bob :) Is that what you call them there? BTW that's a pretty tree in your front garden, I'm trying to find the perfect tree for my back garden!

Dedicated workers! I'm glad it was fixed quickly.

At least it got handled quickly!

Only a true photographer responds to an emergency by pulling out his camera.

Jack is correct of course, glad it was fixed the same day.
