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.
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!
