We received a community-wide e-mail yesterday telling us all that CLEARLY we had ignored the previous announcement asking us to be EXTREMELY conservative with the little bit of water we did get 2 days ago-- because it was now all gone. Hardy-har-har. WE haven't even turned on the tap for 5 days now. We flush with rain-water. Now, those selfish people will have to use porta-potties. I am NOT sympathetic on this one!
And this is precisely why I am feeling panicky about our electrical supply. Without gas and water, I am relying on my electrical power to boil water for cleaning and drinking and for all cooking... I expect most of us are. And that means increased demand on a weakened system. Perhaps... as a result of the water problem, they will realize I was serious and pro-active in my suggestions to the HOA. Perhaps I will soon see a community-wide notice that has made use of my suggestion to rotate use of the community BBQ pits that we have.... I can HOPE, can't I?
