How much do we all take certain things in life for granted? I think the answer to that is most of us. We expect the lights to come on when we flip a switch or the water to come out of a faucet when we turn it on. But…what if this changed?
My water meter
Right now, I’m dealing with this condition at my house. I had to turn my water off on Saturday morning and we’ve been living with no water service in the house since then. It’s now late Monday afternoon and I’ve yet to see the plumber show up to assess the situation.
After the towel mop up, I used the wet and dry vac
This is my mechanical room. I didn't think to take a pic of the standing water.
Then I brought in the super duper fan from the garage and an extension cord and blew it on the carpet all weekend.
With this heat, I had to break down and go to a girlfriend’s on Sunday to take a shower. One can only use so many wet wipes. The next stop was the dollar store for lots of bottled gallons of water.
Supposedly, hearing my desperation, the plumber is working me in somehow so I can at least get cold water into the house until he can properly fix the problem. We’ll see if he shows up later today. I’m not holding my breath.
In times like these, it makes you appreciate running water. I wonder how I can use this in a future story.
