That screaming sound you hear

is what is going to happen in four hours when my wife gets up early and goes into hysterics at the realization that she has no way to shower up for her boss’ big-big confab in Frisco, because I have had to shut off the water main in the middle of the night.


The electrical tape you see was my token attempt to forestall reality until sunrise.  It was about as successful as one might guess — two small sprays of water converted to two tiny but very high-speed sprays of water.

The foundation-repair man comes Friday.

Have I mentioned that the insurance carrier croaked, and we are tryng to get onto a new policy?

  1. If the plumbing in my first house was any indication – you should first tape, then add a piece of cut rubber boot. Afterwards, to secure the leak use a nice rope to wind around the affected area from top to bottom.

    This should ensure a leaf free pipe for atleast until you sell your house.

  2. Good advice…
