Keep calm and "Cary" on. While digging post holes for a deck, somebody hit a water line. Robert Jackson, the project manager, didn't miss a beat. Called the City of Rolling Fork Water Department, who showed up within 10 minutes and turned off the water. Volunteers followed Robert's lead, doing what needed to be done — the pipe was mended, post holes were dug, and the deck was built — and what could've been a stressful, negative situation turned into a fun story to tell back at the dorms.
