    Thumbs down Water, water ... c'mon already!

    We had a water main break right under our driveway, about four years ago ... leaving my yard flooded and ducks swimming around in what used to be my lawn. They ripped a good quarter of my drivweway out, to excavate down to the cracked main ... and repaired it.

    So, tonight the water pressure drops to zero ... I race out the door and three houses down, up the street ... ANOTHER ONE!

    My yard is flooded, again, as I am on one of the downhill slopes of the neighborhood. Yes, there is a lower level nearby, but I don't want to think of how much water it would take to breach down to it, too.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.

    Angry I am really tired of this ...

    Water can be terrible ... if you have a basement. Yeah, sewage would be bad, too.
