Frozen pipe and a big mess

Around 2:00 this afternoon one of our sprinkler pipes froze and caused a sprinkler to malfunction in the main hallway outside the gymnasium.  This resulted in a cascade of water streaming down the walls.  It literally looked like a waterfall in our main hallway.  In addition to this, the water itself smelled terrible.  I learned that water in our  sprinkler system just sits until it is needed.  Thus, the water smelled like a swamp.  Our maintenance crew jumped into action and already have most of it cleaned up.  It certainly was an eventful end to a short week.
