Since Tuesday a sign claiming we were under a boil order has been up. I called City Hall yesterday to see if it affected the whole town. The lady told me that it does effect the whole area and that it wouldn’t be over until Monday at the earliest. She said there’s construction going on and they wanted to be safe.
This means no running water for almost a week. We can shower, but everything else is pretty much a no go. We can’t brush our teeth, cook with it, or even wash our hands.
I never realized how much running water is needed until we didn’t have it.
I miss conveniently washing my hands after I squish ground turkey with them. Now I have to call B-Fry over to pour a jug of water over them to get them clean.
That pitcher of purified water is non-exsistent in our fridge because we can’t drink the stuff. Brushing our teeth is a chore. We have to fill a cup of bottled water and use that to rinse our toothbrushes and mouths. Even washing our hands after using the bathroom sucks.
Its really a pain to not have that lovely stuff flowing out of our faucets. But I guess I’ll do what we have to do to not get E. Coli.
And when I do get it back, this chick is soaking in the tub. Be sure not to disturb!
Have you ever dealt with a multiple day boil order? How did you survive?
****luckily when I got home tonight the boil order had been lifted!!
