Happy Earth Day -- Whatever!

The Keyrose household got a bit of a surprise this morning:  no water.  We noticed a city truck parked on the street at around 6:30 a.m. and water streaming down the avenue.  When we checked our faucets, of course, there was no trickle.

This same thing happened several weeks ago, as you can see by the dark patch of road in the picture.  The new break is off in the near distance (orange cone). 

City crews got to it quick but what bothers me is not so much the interruption in service, but the eventual dust that's going to be flying around for weeks.  Our cars are going to get the brunt of it.  And again I'll be forced to sweep up the gravel from the street to make it look presentable.

So yeah, Happy Earth Day!  Whatever!
