What a mess! This afternoon I was baking hard and fast ........ what a mess I had all over the kitchen.. Then I saw/felt there was lots of water in my big throw rug in front of the sink. So much water it was running all over. I supposed the miserable cats had turned over something and carried the rug outside. Then i scrubbed and scrubbed with big towels, finally getting all the water up. Back to work. A while later I was running the disposal and saw there was even more water on the bare floor!! Lots of water. I finally had the sense to open the under the sink cabinet door ........... it was flooded. Water standing so deep on the floor of the cabinet it was pouring onto the floor. Those miserable pipes - not yet 3 years old - had simply fallen apart. The main one was broken! The plumber will be here in 8-8:30 in the morning. Have you had any disasters lately?

Nancy, there's nothing worse than water where it isn't supposed to be. A few years back I noticed it was wet outside around where the well-head is. No other area was wet. As it turned out there was a hole in one of the pipes that went down into the well. Fortunately it was one of the upper ones so the well guys didn't have to pull out all 400 feet of it.
