The Grand Flood

Wow kitties!!! There was a flood near mom's workplace on Monday night!  It was sort of a man made flood though. A HUGE water main pipe broke and the water rushed out. The pipe was 48" in diameter and was quite old. The news story said it was probably installed in the 1920s. Because it was a main water pipe it effected a wide area. Here is a video from the University of Louisville's security camera of the flooding:




Did you see how the water kept getting higher?!!!

Mom didn't have to go to work on Tuesday. The University shut of the chilled water that runs the air conditioning on campus. Also, the campus had no drinkable water. Mom said the powers that be did the wise thing and canceled classes and shut down the offices for the day.  She had to go back to work yesterday.

This is the most exciting thing that has happened around here for awhile!
