the storm has turned into a typhoon, but is missing the Philippines... we have had heavy rains for the last few days.
this morning the new (and shoddy plastic) pipe that has a spigot for our laundry broke off. I got a showe trying to find a plug until the help came over from the other side to turn off the main water line to the kitchen.
Ah the wonderfulness of shoddy cheap pipes.
Here, you have to know where the pipes come from but of course you have no guarantee unless you go to a high end dealer: Even when they cost a lot often they are counterfeit or substandard.
