When It Rains, It Pours

Literally. Massive flooding this past week has added so much interest to my life (note the sarcasm). A VW-sized sinkhole appeared behind our office, right under our heat pump (which for a brief period was supported only by the ductwork attaching it to the building).

On the homefront, groundwater flooded our well and a water test revealed coliform contamination, so for about four days we couldn’t use our water for anything but showering (no drinking, dishwashing, teethbrushing, nothing). The weekend was spent chlorine-shocking the well, but we still have to wait two weeks to re-test so until then we’re not assuming we’re in the clear (meaning two more weeks of buying bottled water for drinking and teeth-brushing, and adding chlorine to dish-rinsing water). Joy.

The cold that I have been fighting off with vitamin C, denial, and massive amounts of will-power has not enhanced this whole experience.

  1. Ugh! Water problems are the worst. I hope you are feeling better now. I’m sorry about the water. Again. Two more weeks. Ugh!

  2. As you can see, I get really eloquent when I’m overwhelmed with sympathy for someone’s water problems.
