When I woke up this morning there was a utilities truck at the corner of park and college. They are doing heaps of construction around here so I didn't think too much of it. Princess St. is shut down from Concession to Victoria so a lot of cars come down Park to avoid it. When I went out later in the day I saw that Park was down to one lane. And I thought that was odd to have construction on two parallel streets, but it is construction season so it is what it is.
Around dinner time, there was another utilities truck at park and college looking more urgent.
I didn't think too much of it then either. But when I didn't have water in the house anymore I took a look at the utilities twitter and they said they were replacing a broken valve at Princess/ Concession and that water may be out in the area. Hopefully they fix it soon as Step 2 is being held up due to no water!
I managed to do 4 loads of laundry before the water went off (and almost everything dried in the sun!) so I have plenty to fold. Then I guess I'll vacuum!
The poor utilities people are look like they have to deal with a number of agitated people. But there is no sense getting upset over things you can't control.
Edited to add- Utilities have said the water will be back on at 3am.
After the update on Utilities someone mentioned that this was unacceptable as there was no notice. I'm sure they didn't PLAN on it breaking. Not sure how you can give notice for that anyway. Guess I shouldn't be waiting around for it!
