Unrelated to yesterdays bottling, I discovered this morning that a nearby water main has burst. I thought the taps were running a bit sluggishly but, as I cycled to work, I saw that the other end of my road had turned into a temporary lake with emergency services in attendance. Apparently it is almost the same place that a similar problem occured about seven years ago.
That isn’t what you want, especially if you have chosen to live on higher ground rather than a flood plain. I don’t think it will spread to my end of the street but, for the sake of my neighbours at the other end, I hope it patched up and properly fixed as soon as possible.
