Did you know how much water it takes for a toilet to properly flush? Are you aware of how difficult it is to rinse off a battery powered toothbrush with just a dixie cup of water? Am I launching into my savetheworld/conservewater/beahippy routine?
Thanks to our having to get a PO box and our mail getting a bit wonky, we think that we missed the notice that we’d forgotten to pay the water bill. That’s our story and we’re sticking to it. Yesterday morning, I took a shower as usual and headed to the hospital for work. Curse the luck. If I’d been working from home, we would still have water right now.
I got home after 5pm and did my normal things…got out dinner for the dogs and then went to wash my hands after getting the turkey necks out. No water. Hmmmm. Perhaps it’s just the kitchen sink. No water in the bathroom. This is a problem. Check the toilet tank. Bone dry. Panic sets in.
By the time Scott got home from work I had completely flipped out. I was so mad. He found the notice on the front door that we were delinquent in payment (we never got a bill!) and tried to go manually turn the water back on, but they’d put a lock on it. Makes sense, they didn’t turn it off for us just to be able to turn it back on.
So now, the next morning, we still have no water. Somehow the deal worked out that the water Scott bought last night (7 huge containers) would be used for him to get ready to go to work and I’d just stay here with none…I’m thinking that was because I didn’t wake up when he did. I just want to go back to sleep and stay there till the water comes back on, but instead I have to go get more water…there are still 6 animals and one human in the house getting mighty thirsty…
