a day at the beach or a frozen basement

today i visited a house where in the basement; water rained from the pipes above like a beautiful april afternoon. drywall was laying on the floor taking a break from hanging on the ceiling. the carpet lazily waved like a tide pool at the beech. my foot prints were visible like tracks in the sand. the sound of water falls and rain drops were all around.
our cold weather snap a couple weeks ago was a bit much for the water pipes. then our warm week this week thawed it all out.
the kicker is the utilities are all on at the meter. but the heat was off at the thermostat and the breakers were all off at the box. not sure who planned this party.
