This afternoon, my pal Nod and I were peacefully watching TV and so on; then I rinsed some dishes in preparation for putting them into the dishwasher. You would think this was a fairly safe activity, but NOOOOOOOOOOO!
Water started flooding out of the cupboard under the sink. We evacuated all the duplicate sponges, scrubbies, dish liquid, rubber gloves, etc. and found that a pipe connection had corroded until ... the magic moment!
Then we said, OK since we can't fix it ourselves, let's wait and call the plumber tomorrow, and meanwhile, go out and get a new faucet. But ... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Water started GUSHING out of the SKY!
You can see by the map that it is one of those Stevie Ray Vaughn days ("It's Floodin' Down in Texas"). Where we are the water runs off into Galveston Bay fairly well and quickly, but upstream ... (EEEEEEEEEEEEK!)
