no water damage yet, but also no water

The ceiling in the kitchen was leaking again, but Lindsey noticed it and we Took Swift Action!

You may recall that a pipe burst this past January, while we were gone for winter break, and the kitchen was pretty much destroyed. It seems like a related problem, this time around!

We figured out how to turn off the water main. There's a small manhole-like thing out in the front yard and we went out with a wrench and shut off the water before there was any major damage! +20 Competent Adult Points!

Landlady Amy came over, took a look at it, kindly gave us a bunch of apple cider and rice krispy treats, and promised to call repair people in the morning.

(can we shower at your house?)

(running water is exceedingly convenient.)
