So in addition to being stuck in my driveway by the city water/sewer folks, they now have shut the water off. I went out and asked them how long it would be be and they said they had no clue - I was like are you thinking an hour, 3, 4 or 8 hours. I also asked if they normally give out notice and he said not when it's an emergency.
I pointed out to him that they have had trucks on our street for the past week and the location of pipes were painted out on the road a few days ago, so I find it hard to believe that this project wasn't planned. He told me that was for the sewer dept and he is with the water dept.....righttttt...
He did say that it should be on by 3 pm, because he gets out at 3 pm. So if this was a real true ememrgency such as a water main break, like he is claiming it to be, how convienent is it that he is getting the water turned back on by the time he is done for the day.
They also couldn't go door to door to give notice because they had to take care of the emergency. Evidently it takes two people to do the job and four people to sit in their trucks and watch.
