There was a very slow trickle of water coming out, but not much. It did not act like something got stuck in the aerator.
It may be the aerator then...if you're getting a slow trickle then you are getting water to the faucet...a lot of the aerators have a disc with a hole not much bigger than a pencil lead so it doesn't take much to clog it and as stated above when shutting off the main you always stir up debris.....Good luck and let us know how it turns out...
