Seems that someone plowed into a fire hydrant only 10 - 15 minutes before I called. Rumor has it that this person was texting - which is now against the law while driving in our state. I asked the nice lady if she knew how long it would be and she basically told me not a clue, the crew was on their way. Great. My nice neighbor who gave me the tidbit about the rumor also gave me a gallon of water - just so I'd have my cup of coffee. So sweet :)
I can not tell you how many times I turned on the faucet. Not because I was checking to see if it was back on, but rather out of pure habit! I'd get a bit of jelly on my fingers - rinse my fingers off ::oh yeah, that's right!::
Get the picture?
This went on for 6 hours.
There were plenty of times that I did turn it on just to see if it actually was back on. Just thought you should know that.
But it was all worth it in the end. All the jesting by Dani - "You just can't get it in your head that the water's out!" - all the flushless potty breaks ::yikes::
Some fella from the dept. had to flush the hydrant for, oh say, an hour - to get rid of air in the lines (?). What ever, that doesn't matter. But what does matter are these happy kids...
John Paul right where the action is!
All the kids from the cul-de-sac
Charlie still debating whether this is something he wants to do
He's getting closer to the action!
Not sure if the workman was positioning the water upward because he was supposed to or if he was doing it for the kids enjoyment.
You can see how it's spraying upward now, unlike the flowing into the street in earlier shots
Charlie decided to join in after all
It was so worth every arid minute!
