Steve, The City is working on fixing a leak at my end of the block. I spoke to the crew a few minutes ago and a worker said the water should be out "for a few hours." About a week or two ago, water started pooling in a pothole, and I feared we'd have a break in a water main. I'm glad the city is getting to this, but I miss running water too!
