Water damage

If you ever wondered what the ceiling of your family room looked like after the dry wall was removed, well here it is.

We had the following valve break in the upstairs bath and pour water into the lower levels of the house.

The piece on the right is the valve stem. The handle (left) broke off and allowed the water to stream into the bath for several hours while we were absent from the house.

What does this have with biking? Not much except that I need to be here at the house to meet repair contractors which takes me away from my usual training rides. It is a good thing that this event happened during the off season.

By the way, we have changed all of the plastic valves in the house to metal. Hopefully this will not happen again.
