Living on the edge

We got real a taste of living on the edge this week after a water leak, which turned out to be a burst pipe, prompted the City Council to shut off our water due to the risk of "landslip" (what Americans call a landslide). Sure enough, a large chunk of the hill that we live on had slid onto the road below.

That's our house up on top of the hill there. We've got about 30 feet from the house to the edge of the hill. A day and an exhausted plumber later, the water is now back on. I guess it's the price you pay for unobstructed views of the city and ocean below.
