    You haven't seen the Rio Grande recently have you? It is dry in New Mexico at the moment. :)

    This thread is worthless without pics.

    yeah it's a coincidense I think, the one in waterbury was a 24in main, this one is a 16in main, but they haven't found were it started yet, pisser is we've got no water, and our cars are in teh path. luckly the water isn't above the bottom of the cars.
