Yay! and Boo!

The good news: we’re final­ly done with the water boil­ing! It’s a good thing, too. The stores are all out of bot­tled water.

The bad news: the girl has a nasty migraine 🙁 She was sup­posed to leave Fri­day after­noon for the week­end, and it looks like that may not hap­pen. I hope she does­n’t have to can­cel alto­geth­er. She’s been doing SO much bet­ter with the migraines after a course of Pred­nisone final­ly broke a near-con­stant cycle of them, so I guess I should be grate­ful that they’re rel­a­tive­ly uncom­mon now.

County Blah

Why do we have a reverse-911 sys­tem, if the coun­ty won’t use it to tell us things like, “Hey, we had a water main break and you need to boil your water before using it.”

We’ve had so many water main breaks in the last year that I’m glad we don’t drink tap water, any­way (even with boil­ing, it tastes nasty to me). We do cook with it, though.

Oh–I guess since we don’t have (or want) a land line, they would­n’t call us any­way, would they? It seems to me that cell phones should be includ­ed some­how, based on the address on the account or where you are when an alert goes out, or some­thing. Since more and more peo­ple don’t both­er with land lines, that’s a sig­nif­i­cant issue.

So, yeah, boil­ing water ’til Wednes­day after­noon at the very least. I’m glad I looked at the local news­pa­per’s web site!
