It happens maybe one spring out of four ... a big slide of melting snow comes down the mountain, snapping off trees, loosening boulders, collecting debris, and lands on our water supply intake. Typically we limp along on almost no water, just a bit of seepage, for a few days or a week or two until a combination of melting and digging allows Chuck to get in an repair the intake.
Of course it happens today, after Saturday morning soccer games, before a Saturday afternoon of rehearsals and Saturday evening concert, before Sunday morning aikido and Sunday afternoon rehearsals and concert. Just when we have no time, and are wanting clean laundry and warm showers for our stinky bodies. Typical.
