Never a dull moment

Possible gas leak in Milton Road outside the church.
A parishioner left me a message on our home phone after I left for work this morning, which I got after work when I got home, saying she smelt gas on the street. So I went out and checked and I caught a vague whiff of it too. I called Con Ed (the gas company) and, long story short, we eventually ended up with firetrucks, police cars, and firemen checking the basements of all the adjoining buildings (yes, including our apartment).
However, it seems to be localized in the sewer that runs along Milton Road, they checked the basement of the church right next to where it seems strongest and there’s no trace there. Somewhere along the sewer there must be a crack near a cracked gas pipe, but our sewer line comes in from the other side of the building (and this has nothing to do with the new rectory sewer which also goes in the other direction) and is not connected to this one. It’s a minimal leak, so no danger, but it remains to be seen if we end up with the road dug up….
