Went to wash the coffee pot out and didn't have much water pressure. Looked out back and the bottom of the fence was wet. Strolled out and looked over the fence and this is what I found. The yard needs water, but this is overkill:

No water for a while it looks like! :bigrofl:

Wow, I really hope for your sake that is on the boro/city/twp side of the meter...

I'll give you a dollar if you go out in your swim trunks and play in it like a kid. :laughingteeth:

Oh, and pics would be mandatory.

I can just see your neighbors. Mrs Cravits would be pressed against the window calling for her hubby to come see what the nutty neighbor is up to now... :bigrofl:

I didn't get pics, but I waded thru it. Felt good. It's a city main. My water meter is about 20' from the break.

As dry as the ground is around here, expect a lot more of this. My front door will barely open or close. After it rains good it will be fine.

Looks like a great place to try out those AGs. Don't worry about the rutts in the lawn. They'll have to fix them.

The little town I live in, we are used to low water pressure, it happenes here quite often. I blew a garden hose and didn't think about checking it or 2 dys, I just thought the city had another water main break. I am almost afraid to look at my next bill.

Just, changing subject for asecond, but aren't you guys always looking for GT games, at the shows?

How about a Mud Bog treasure hunt, or something like that?

Has anyone ever been to the swamp buggy races in Naples Fla. ?
