No water

On the way home, I drove through a huge puddle at the bottom of our street. It seemed to be growing by leaps and bounds as water gushed from some unseen source into the road. Well, it seems that would be the water that's supposed to be in our taps. No water at home. Nothing like the lack of something to make you appreciate it! I feel so thirsty, just knowing it's not there. I also feel incredibly wasteful, thinking of all the water I used to rinse dishes and handwash laundry this morning without saving any. It's been raining all week, but no water outside either (unless we raid the swimming pool, which is about to overflow anyway). Water. Appreciate it. Respect it.
Hopefully, ours will be back soon.

I sure hope so - I have managed to turn the kitchen tap on about 50 times this morning and then though "thats right there is no water"!

We don't know what we got til it's gone! Even though it's frustrating, it's always good to have a kick in the pants to remind us how lucky we are. Thanks for spreading the lesson without the frustration of having to go through it ourselves!
