They Are Digging Again

digging the street

This morning around 8:00 A.M. someone knocked at our door to warn us that they will be cutting off the water around 9:00 A.M. They ended up cutting it off at 12:00 P.M. More digging on our street, this time just opposite our house. They said that there was a leak. So lots of noise and dust again today. Second time this week. Not very pleasant for a Saturday morning, but what must be done, must be done. Better than the alternative. I hope that your street is quiet today and nobody is diggin over there.

My street is quiet, my house is quiet, my yard is quiet. I hope this will finish your road maintenance for the time being.

My street has traffic, our house is a peaceful house and and yards outside are pretty quiet too as the neighbors are all retired.

That is a rough way to begin a casual Saturday. I hope that they finished already.

Not a great way to start your day with all that noise and dust. So far today it's quiet here with no noisy neighbors etc.

I suspect it was urgent if they worked on Saturday, let's hope the problem is now fixed.

It looks like they fixed the problem, they still have to repave.

@LadyDuck The repaving will be fast as it is only a piece of the road.

I hate when they are digging outside and I have trying to concentrate inside. I also hate the drilling. We have a lot of construction around my area and also digging has gone on for the city I think too.

When our crew does work on the road they do it at night. The ones I hate is the yard workers both here and across the street. They start in at six a.m. and if I have the window open it is an irritating way to start the day.

@marlina ......It really is. I would be upset if they were there on a Saturday morning. Especially if I was still working.

Nothing is worse than finding out you have a water leak underground, especially when the water mains travel underneath the roads or concrete slabs. A couple of years ago we found out we had a leak underneath one of our Olympic-sized swimming pools, and I feared the worst...that they would have to close the pool for months and rip up the entire pool deck to try and find where the leak was. Surprisingly, they came in with specialized equipment (I called it an x-ray machine, but that's not exactly what it was), and they were able to pinpoint exactly where the leak was and how deep underground it was. Turns out they only had to close a small section of the pool deck to cut up the concrete and dig down to patch the leak. It was fascinating to watch how it was all handled.

Well, I do hope the repair of the leak does not last that long. It has been noisy here for 3 days due to roofers putting a new roof on the big house behind ours. A big job due to it being a tear-off and a lot of roof to cover.
