They dug up the road just for me!

Well, for us.

I’ve always thought of roadworks as being centrally organised by the council, and it turns out you can get your road dug up just by asking! (Well, once they’ve determined that you actually have a problem, anyway.)

Our gas supply is fixed now and we have heating again. The hole in the road is still there. I assume that once we were sorted it stopped being urgent, so they’re now leaving it till after the weekend.

Incidentally, I don’t recommend obeying that arrow.
