No water again today. My faucets are all very sad. They sit idle and unfulfilled.
We did have advance notice. When I got home from another City Council meeting on Tuesday, there was a tag on the door, "Boil Water Advisory" it said. Sigh. Here we go again.
Because we knew in advance that the city would be shutting off our water for the day today (and then the 72 -hour boil water thing - so much fun) I washed the cars, did laundry and made certain that all the dishes were caught up, everything was clean yesterday. We woke extra early so that we could both get our showers before shut off. See? Organization and planning.
As I understand it, the town workers are replacing a valve? Some valves? There are valves involved. And meanwhile, bottled water, no flushing, no washing, no doing anything with water involvement today. And it's really astonishing how much of what I do every day involves water! Just the sheer number of times I wash my hands in a twenty-four hour period is crazy. Dang, I should have bought some of that hand sanitizer stuff. Well, I guess I could go get some. It does not require water for me to walk to the store and buy hand sanitizer.
Good, now I have my mission in place. When I get back, I could dust and vaccum. Neither of those require water. And after that, ummm, well, I could, ummmm read?
I guess if I really feel water deprived, I can just take a little walk to the beach. I can frolic in the water all I like and then come home and.........not wash off the salt. Ok, maybe not that. But I'm sure I'll think of something. I think today is going to feel extra long.
But I hope yours is a great one!
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
