2010 has begun with a bang -- a seriously loud one. It started with some of the worst weather seen in the UK in over 30 years -- airports closed, roads impassable, and scarily cold temperatures. When the thaw finally began, so did the burst pipes. We had two in as many days.
The first was in the cellar at my house. I happened to hear it pop and was able to get the water switched off quickly. I wasn't so lucky with the pipe that burst at the warehouse. It was completely flooded! Luckily, nothing was damaged as we keep everything on shelves there. Cleaning up was not a lot of fun, especially while trying to get orders out. Eep! But I'm happy to report everything is spic and span, and considering how bad things could have been, we got very lucky.
Still, I have to moan a little. :) And would gratefully accept any spare sympathy.
