: Well , problem solved! It turns out that the neighbor decided to drain his above ground pool today and my lot is about 6-12 inches lower... and therfore... lots of water in my yard.
This should be a warning to you...You now realize that in an emergency, you have no idea how or where to shut the water off. This is something EVERYBODY should know. It can mean the difference between getting the mop out or calling your insurance agent. Water can do tremendous amounts of damage in very little time.
