you don't miss your water
A water main up at the corner broke this morning - the first warm day we've had in weeks - & a lot of people had a scuzzy day. I had just enough water in the fridge to make coffee & do basics. A little while ago I concluded I'd have to walk up to 7-11 & hope there hadn't been a run on 1/2 gallons. I passed a hole in the street & a repair crew. I got the water, & when I walked home the hydrant on the corner was turned on, water pouring out. On my corner a couple of men were in the street opening up a below ground valve. The water in my building was flowing again. I flushed the toilet. I'm drinking the bottled water.
