It never rains, it pours!

The saying it never rains, it pours was never so relavant. Mid day I received a call from the neighbour to say that there was a new water feature in the front yard. A water main had burst. I arrived home 15 minutes later to see a pristine lake where once the grass had been. Not sure who to call, I made a quick call to the District of West Vancouver. Within 10 minutes they were at the house, had switched off the water, created a temporary fix and were on their way.  Wow we live in a great place. The down side, I got a speeding ticket on the way to the house and a flat tyre on the way out of our street. When it rains.....Thank you to the District, it could have been much worse.
