Figured out why I've been chopping down the jungle out back by the back door. It was so people could carry water heaters in and out.
I'm not sure whether they've managed to torque or jimmy the main water valve to be able to turn the water back on. About half an hour ago the one guy asked me whether the water'd been turned off, and said it seems as if there's something broken in the main valve, and he couldn't get it to turn back on. Yes, I may need to get a plumber. But he'd fiddle with it more and see what he could do. There were some screechy sounds. Think that could be good?
I've never seen The Money Trap, but it's hard to imagine how it could be a comedy.
