Call before you dig

15 Jul

You know those signs that say, “Call before you dig”? Well, there is a reason for the warning.

Thursday morning, about 9:30AM, one of our Admin Assistants at First Central Bible Church came down the hallway to say we didn’t have any water. Looking out the window, we saw three City of Chicopee trucks in the parking lot. She went outside to find out what was going on. The apartment complex next door was renovating their playground. The person doing the work was using an auger, probably digging a footing for the new equipment. As you can guess, he hit a water main. Instead of building a playground, he now had a swimming pool. 😉 The city came to the rescue, but first they had to call Dig Safe to find out what else was underground. Fortunately, the water was back on by noon.

A little bit of excitement and humor for a weekday morning.
