On Sunday morning my neighbor rang the door bell to tell me that we must have a broken pipe, because water is gushing from the driveway into the street. Sure enough some pipe under the driveway burst and we had to shut down the water to the entire house.
Fortunately we have a big pool in the backyard and after some google search on exactly how safe pool water is for consumption I have spend the day boiling water and setting up buckets and pots all over the house. How fun!
I did manage to get some drinking water set aside, but the trips to the pool to heat water for washing reminded me of all these pretty paintings I encountered in the past of women shlepping rather large buckets of water. I sure did not look this good yesterday! :)
