Will it ever stop raining? Friday Chad was out messing around with his pickup and I walked out to talk to him and noticed the water wasn’t draining in the storm drain!
I called the city and explained that something wasn’t right. On my side of the street, there’s a creek that catches all this storm water so the water was coming over the ground and draining into the creek so that it wouldn’t back up near my house.
One thing I will miss about this town is when you call for help . . whether it’s storm water backing up or an armadillo I want to shoot . . they come very quickly.
The first crew arrived within 5 minutes of my call. They tried to resolve the issue but could not. The drain pipe was completely clogged with debris. They called for reinforcement.
They tried sticking the pressure hose down the man hole.
They didn’t have much success going that route so they tried sticking it up the drain pipe.
Then more reinforcements arrived.
Wonder why the older vehicles are bright blue and the newer vehicles are navy blue. I like the bright blue better. No one asked me and my guess is . . no one cares what I think.
Believe it or not, I had other things to do besides stand out there and watch the nice men at work. Next time I looked out, they were gone and the water was drained as it should be.
Thank you very much to the City of Nevada for such prompt service! I don’t always like everything you do . . especially that red tag guy (see his calling card across the street?) but I do appreciate how quickly you respond when there’s a need.
