Just Another Happening Night In Hollywood




















Thankfully we are homebodies. Saturday night when the rest of Hollywood was out on the town, I was busy working in our bedroom. Then I heard it-the tell tale drip of trouble. The drips quickly turned to showers. In two seconds time I was able to grab a bucket in our adjoining master bath. Even so, there was quite a puddle. Water was streaming through our air conditioning vent.

My camera caught the clear water against the beige walls. See the ripples in the bucket?

Then the fire alarm went off.

Good times.

Turns out a hose that connects the roof top pool to the filter had spun out of control and was shooting water directly into our air conditioning vent on the roof.

Our building manager was home. We are experienced with leaks and have buckets and towels at the ready. Still, had we been out? How long before the pump burned out? How much of the pool would have made it into our apartment?

Well, they say things happen in threes. This was our third leak this year.

Maybe we are done.

Echo the previous comment. That could have been a mess.

Definitely lucky to be home and prepared. Glad there wasn't much damage. :)
