The Joys of Home Ownership?

Last evening we came home to a wet floor and wetter ceiling and found that a pipe had burst in the attic!

This is the pipe that broke.

The leak was easy for the plumber to access through the hole in the ceiling....

Seeing a fire extinguisher makes me a little nervous!

And here's why we might have needed the fire extinguisher (we didn't, of course)!

Now we're left with a plastic covered hole for a few days.

All said and done, the whole thing could have been much worse. The plumber was very reasonable, even at overtime prices. The leak was slow and the water did really minimal damage considering what it could have done. We have friends in the construction industry who have recommended a good drywaller to fix the ceiling.

Here's hoping we have a dry floor when we get homne tonight!
