We are working on the water system in your neighborhood and it is necessary to temporarily discontinue service on
FRI MAR 18 2005 FROM -8 30 AM UNTIL 4 30 PM
Which is fine and reasonable and hardly worth blogging about, especially since I didn't notice any interruption.
But today (Tuesday, March 22), I went to take a shower and discovered that we had no water pressure. And there were WPJWA trucks surrounding a hole in the street. I was mightily grumpy.
I called WPJWA to complain, and talked with somebody who was reasonably apologetic, so I'm mollified.
