I was planning a different post for today. However, yesterday the main water line developed a leak–ours, not the city’s. Actually, the evidence suggests that it had probably been leaking for some time, it only got to the surface yesterday.
What I really need is to replace that whole line. Unfortunately, that just is not economically possible right now. So, instead, it gets replaced bit by bit where a leak develops. Thank heaven for my cousin and nephew who are willing to help out on this.
Right now, a good portion of the ditch has been dug, the pipe has been located. There’s more digging still to do before the length of pipe can be replaced. Meantime, there’s no running water.
This has sort of interrupted my plans, as you might imagine, not to mention seriously cut into my productivity. I’ll do the research and get the blog post I intended for today up next time. Promise.
