This is a problem we are having, apparently (and also, not just me!)

My doorbell just rang.

It was the city.

They're turning off water to the entire street.  For half an hour.

Apparently, my neighbor across the street has a busted water main.  I saw a plumber's truck out there last week.

I am simultaneously horrified for my neighbor, and intensely, smugly gratified. Although not at my neighbor's expense, but in the "SEE!  I TOLD you!" way.

Apparently, the city is fixing his problem for free as well.  For which I am truly grateful for my poor neighbors.

I should bring them cookies or something this weekend.  And commisserate.
