While we were sleeping…

Water main break
Originally uploaded by Big Dadoo.

…there was a water main break in our front yard! In fact there were two breaks on our street and 15 in the city yesterday. Scott called it in last night at approximately 1am and spoke with some of the repair guys. Apparently, the dry soil conditions and the lower temperatures triggered a rash of water main breaks. The city only has 10 portable water wagons, so we don’t even have a temporary water source. The current ETA of a repair crew is much later this evening, so it may be Sunday before service is restored.

It’s amazing how much you use water and just expect it to be there. Well, at least the broadband connection is still up & running.
