I woke up about 1am and checked the faucets; the flow had decreased dramatically, so I left one open all night. This morning around 7am, the flow stopped completely! I'd prepared for this by running a bucket of water for the toilet and several pitchers and pots for kitchen use, so I wasn't too worried. Inconvenient, but do-able if necessary. Around 9am the phone rang. It was Greg with news from Christiane (who becomes our 'communications centrale' when there is a village crisis). Indeed, there was a leak in one of the large water pipes that serves our village and SAUR was working on it. Thus, no water!. Within an hour or so, the problem was fixed, and the crisis was over. I now have full water pressure....and several pots, pitchers and buckets of water sitting around the house!
