Wet mess

We noticed, right after supper, that the water pressure was low.  I went outside and saw water running down our driveway...all  the way from the cross street upslope.  Lots of water.  Lots and lots of water.  Went back in; Himself tried to call the water department and got voicemail, so he called the police, figuring they had a more direct line to the water department. 

Next thing you know, large machinery arrived up at the corner and started making a large hole in the ground (bigger than the hole the water was coming out of, of course.)  The street is blocked in all directions.  Tomorrow I'm supposed to go meet with a librarian and some students.  I hope they have it fixed by then.
