snow deluge 10.12.10
Chaotic scenes here at _B_A Towers last night, when the frozen pipe finally went and burst. I was away seeking sanctuary with generous friends, who provided me with a supply of running water, but in my absence all manner of hell broke loose. Every one of the building's inhabitants was out in the street at 4am. A torrent of cold H2O had come flooding into all the downstairs flats, inflicting massive damage and causing the mains supply to be cut off. I called an emergency plumber tonight and they won't be coming round to fix it til Monday afternoon. And I missed the Yuck 'n Yum launch as there's no taxis available anywhere. Truly if it ain't one thing then it's another.
