I was waiting for mum to come home on Wednesday but then I noticed all sorts of water coming all over the place. Just like we had farther down the street last summer.
So all sorts of big and noisy trucks arrived and started diggin in the street making a huge hole.
This is right at the end of the spot where mum brings the metal monster into it's room. How will she get home? Mum is resourceful, she just parked the car down the street and walked the rest of the way. Mum says all of 100 feet, she can handle that.
Once they dug the hole, a guy went inside and then the water stopped rushing out. Then a big truck showed up and hacked up stuff to go into the hole.
Then this other big machine pushed it around more into the hole.
Mum had changed her clothes so she went outside when the truck showed up with another load to yak up.
The good news is that the water isn't leaking and with all of the rock, mum can bring the metal monster into its room every night. Mum says she is happy this didn't happen in the winter or we would have had lots of ice. Mum said the guy said the water main broke, probably since they put extra pressure on it when they flushed the fire hydrants!
While mum was out she took a few pictures of the flowers. The hy-a-cinths are all blooming.
Plus a lot of our tulips are blooming too. Ah, it is so nice to have color and flowers again.
Happy weekend one and all.
