    Default My Saturday

    Today I'm out working and I get a call from my Sister. She told me I need to come home. BTW, she is living with me for a bit. Apparently the front yard developed a bulge and water was coming out of it. It turns out the water line broke.

    I made another time lapse video of the repair. I can't wait to see it when it is done.

    Now you have to work on Sunday to pay for the water lateral repair.

    Can't wait to see the time lapse video.

    That was cool. In my neck of the woods, the water lines are 8' deep otherwise they'll freeze in the winter. Digging them out by hand is not an option. Pretty cool vid.

    Add a sound track of Yakety Sax and some young women running around in their underwear and we would have Benny Hill.

    I know, I know. My neighbor asked me the same thing. I assured him all was clear... Until I hit a darn water line.
