10" Brocken Water Main

It took me a while to get home today because the street was completely flooded at the neighborhood entrance. We will probably be without water for 24+ hrs. as a result of a 10" water pipe busting as a City of Atlanta contractor attempted to install a valve (which is soooo ironic because it took them FOREVER to finally shut the water off so people could enter/exit the neighborhood. The water system infrastructure of Atlanta is over 100 years old, hence the delay in shutting off the water).

Of course I had to take some pics...

Every local news station was covering the story.
(they even sent the helicopters out)

My man above deserves a promotion.
He was standing in 12" of water and mud (while it was raining) so he could give this interview.
