Domestic disturbance?

First of all, a small warning. I hope you are not eating or about to eat anything when reading this post. The subject can be an appetite killer. You can always skip the text and just look at the pictures ;-)
We received a letter from our town council saying they will be cleaning sewers in our town during the following two weeks. Fine so far. Apparently we may experience some nasty odors during the process. Ok, fine. They are using a very high pressure cleaning system, so we may also have some splashing water coming up from our sinks and toilets. Hmmm....

We are being told to keep toilet seats down and put something HEAVY on top of them. Hang on! Are we talking about a wee bit splashing water or raw sewage fountains shooting up from our toilets, flooding the house? Groan. We are also told not to use our toilets when cleaning tanks are operating in our street, unless you want an unusual bide experience of course...
Thankfully we did not start our holiday yet, leaving sinks and toilet seats wide open for these fountains and splashes. What a nice home coming it would have been.... Phew!

*Edit* Congratulations Spain - UEFA Euro 2008 champion!! Hurrah! :-)

We had that same letter a few weeks ago. And other than some gurgling pipes that were a bit ´windy´ (left some smell), we didn't notice anything. And we even weren't always consistent with closing the lid. So don't worry it will probably just fine.
Nice pictures! They don't stink at all ;-)
Have a nice week! M

@ Marianne: You were right, it went just fine. Our street was cleaned today and only disturbance was some stench. Wonder why they had to paint so much "scarier" picture in their letter, playing it safe I suppose :-)

No hyvä että meni hyvin:)Kai niiden täytyy kertoa se pahin mahdollinen seuraamus ettei kukaan jälkikäteen meuhkaa:miksi ei kerrottu että tällaista voi tapahtua,ja sitten vaaditaan korvauksia:)

@ Rosabeer: Hih, glad my post helped ;-)

@ Anja: I worried for nothing as it all went smoothly. It stank a bit, but that was all.
