Water works

So after a looooong weekend of making progress, we hit a snag. We had to move the fridge multiple times to take off wallpaper and put drywall mud up. The problem? The ice maker was hooked up using an old copper wire. Nowadays they use flexible tubing so it doesn't crack.

Since it was copper... it cracked.


Water started spraying everywhere, so we quickly turned off the valve. The problem? The valve was broken too!

I ended up calling the emergency utility number (because we couldn't locate the water main). Thankfully someone was able to come out, but they were about 40 minutes away.

Jon grabbed dinner...

The city guy came out, was awesome, and quickly fixed the problem.

So hopefully we'll get a plumber in there soon!
