we found the leak!
oh, yes! that is our bathroom floor w/ a HUGE hole! HA! the plumbers found the leak under the slab, under our bathtub. while they jack hammered, we prayed that somehow it would be lightening related!
and it was! check out those burn marks! if you look close you can see where the lightening blew out the pipe. then, the heat welded the pipe back together - leaving a TINY hole.
i have to say that i'm just so thankful for our safety right now. for those that don't know... the lightening struck the tree on the far right, just behind the truck (on loan from a friend) and finally grounded out in the kid's bathroom which is the window on the far left b/t the two trees! it ran under the whole length of our home! ahhh! now i know why it sounded so bad and scared us so much! thank you, LORD, for your protection!
