I'm writing this on Monday, fully hoping that if I write it, it will come. Last Wednesday, we called a plumber after noticing that our front yard had a spring flowing through it. We live in the desert, so running water normally calls for celebration. Not this time.
The plumbers came and decided (after extensive sleuthing work, "pruning" of shrubs, and some jackhammering), that the easy fix would be to reroute the pipes.
By then it was Thursday. They left that afternoon, telling us that we could turn on the water to the house for very brief periods of time, but that every time we would use water, the trenches would fill up with water. They just needed the trenches to be dry in order for them to continue the work.
Guess what unlikely, usually welcome weather we had on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday? Oh, yes, we were singing in the rain, but we were singing the blues.
Monday dawned dry, though, and we resisted the urge to have running water. The plumbers arrived by mid-day and started working. I am hoping by the time this posts, I will again be enjoying all the modern-day conveniences running water affords.
Thanks for the ease of our modern lifestyle, and for being prepared for emergencies.
