And we lost the free water. For the entire day.
This is my front yard. The repairmen drove this into my front yard, parked it and left it there for several minutes. To prepare me. For this:
What you can't see are the repairmen in the hole behind that huge pile of dirt. The work was finished at 7:00 p.m. All of our services are restored. I can do laundry again, but not for free; we can surf the web and talk on the phone again. It was a beautiful day so everyone just played outside anyway. I knitted and read outside. The cul-de-sac and its residents have new copper water pipes. And the water company is sending a lawn service to reseed the yard. Woo hoo!
