Murphy strikes again!

Well I finished my 7 days in a row working and thought I had 4 relaxing days off. Granted some house work needs to be done, but no, I come home to a major crisis. Turned on a water faucet in the kitchen and it spits and sputters then some black water comes out then it clears up but no pressure. All of the faucets do the same thing. Now I have no water. NONE! This is the pits! Can't do laundry, dishes, cook, shower. I can't even use the toilet! I'm not 100% sure what the problem is but I strongly suspect that a line from the well to the house froze and broke. I can't believe this! I'm finally starting to make a little headway with the overtime I've worked. Thought there would be a Christmas for my kids, then this happens. I have a friend coming to look at it this evening or tomorrow. He is a plumber and he used to live in this house. So hopefully he can at least isolate the problem. His wife strongly recommended I don't call the local plumbing company. She says they will rip me off and over charge me. Hopefully if her husband can't fix it he can at least recomend someone reliable, fair and honest. I just can't believe this is happening at this time. If something can go will! (Hence my title). Well I hope things are going better for all of you. Have a great day! And as a good friend of mine would say....."Happy, happy, joy, joy!"

Thanks Barb. Just say a little prayer for me. It may be a silly thing but I could use an angel about now.
