We spent hours shoveling through a foot of snow in the front to locate the shut-off for the mains. Heck, we've been there two weeks today! Good weather all the while, why would we know where it is?
Luckily the city has an emergency water service, so at 2:30 am, that good Samaritan with a meter key arrived.
We have no water right now, and are in a long line to have that remedied. Perhaps I'll now have projects of updating and insulating the garage to share. It's seemingly a must.
Be safe, folks. We like you better showered.
