Yesterday I wrote about filling 200 WATER balloons.
Today, we have no WATER!!!!
Along with 5,000 of our neighbors.
We have experienced much flooding this Spring and it has taken it's toll on some of our large water pipes. Last Tuesday the Grand River spilled over it's banks, broke a levy and busted an 8" pipe. This pipe supplied water to two different water districts. Ours was one of them. In the meantime we have been ordered to boil the water we have, until it sadly.......... runs out. This morning Rick took a shower in a trickle of water. This afternoon, it's barely dripping.
We are anxiously waiting for the flood waters to recede so they can make repairs. In the meantime, we are drinking lots of bottled water. Taking advantage of our very gracious Grandma and Grandpa, and PRAYING!!!!!
I can't use these................
this.................. (not good)
or this............ (really not good)
I have to used bottled water for flowers, our pets, cleaning and dishes.
The monkeys are reduced to eating their morning cereal in disposable cups. Paper towels and Clorox wet wipes are my friend. And I have never craved a nice long bath so much in my life.
