Water, Water Everywhere

But We Can’t Drink The Stuff

The entire county in which I live (with my wife and two cats) is under a water emergency that’s liable to last for three days. No outdoor watering, drink only after boiling, no laundry, no dishwashing limited flushing. Government buildings are closed throughout the county for lack of water (and do you thing my company will shut down the building? Noooooooo!).

Water users are advised to bring water to a rolling boil for one minute before using. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and food preparation.
Restoring water pressure and testing the water quality are expected to take at least three days.
Mandatory water restrictions are also in effect for those customers.

Those restrictions include the following:

  • No outside watering;
  • No filling swimming pools;
  • No doing laundry;
  • No dishwashing;
  • Limiting your toilet flushing, if you have water.

The water restrictions are in place so that there’s enough water pressure for fire protection.

This will not be fun, and I’m reminded that the saying “May you live in interesting times.” is a curse.

Truth be told, I’ll be okay without the water, but I won’t survive three days without coffee.
