So last night we were sitting at home when we hear a knock on the door and it is a group of firemen asking if we have a car in our underground parking lot. Now as many of you know, a few years ago our old apartment burned down so my immediate reaction is panic.
We go running outside and it turns out that a water main has burst under the street outside of out apartment and it is pouring thousands of gallons of water down the hill and into our parking lot. It was actually pretty insane. The whole street was coming up and buckling like there had been an earthquake and there were firemen everywhere.
So as the parking garage is filling up, there is this one car left. Turns out she is out of town. The water ended up going all the way up to her windows. Poor lady– when she comes home she is going to be so bummed.
Eventually they got a firetruck down the hill and started pumping water out and at this point I ask a fireman exactly what is happening and what the next few days will be like as the reconstruct out street. He tells me that we will be without water for at least a few days so if I need to shower I better do it now. So in the middle of all of this madness, I run to my apartment and wash my hair like a maniac under a dribbling stream of lukewarm water. Just as I was finishing they turned the water off! And even though we will be waterless for a few days… I still feel like I won…
