The guys came back today to dig the footers. They dug. They dug my water main right out of the ground. It seems the water main at The Crossing doesn't go in a straight line to the well -- it goes in an S shape. Because of the shape, they didn't hit water line once or even twice - they hit it 5 times! Gotta love it!
About 1pm today, the guys came and banged on the door and asked me to pop my garage door open so they could turn off the pump to my well. I guess they had a gusher going! I peeked out the window and saw them bailing buckets full of water out of the holes in the ground. It was pretty funny! They immediately told me that our builder was on the way with repair supplies.
I think they thought I was going to be upset since this is the second water pipe they have broken. I don't get uptight about this sort of thing as long as they fix it before they go home. See that black pipe - that's my temporary water main. Yup - we can pee and take a shower!
The photos are a little dark today because the guys were here late. We didn't think they would ever go home. Mr. Bug was almost ready to feed them dinner!
If we are lucky, they are going to pour the concrete tomorrow... Those pictures should be really cool!
