Water water everywhere...

Here's a few lessons from our recent flood:

  • Everyone has their own idea of what 'conserving water' is
  • You CAN conserve more than you already do, really, you can!
  • No matter how hard you try, people will still break the rules or take advantage of ugly situations
  • There ARE good people everywhere, and they ARE looking out for the little guy
  • If one of you takes a FAST shower, the other one can sponge off easily with what's left in the bottom of the tub
  • You can easily wash and rinse your hands many many times in one partial sinkful of water
  • People do have good hearts and smarts (even the most expensive bottled water was marked down during the 'emergency' to a low cost-the same as the 'generic')
  • People's hearts are really big, even in a big city
  • Corporations care, and they DO follow the rules to try and help out
  • You CAN cook without water, you just have to use your imagination (or bottled water)
  • Unfortunately, it IS tough to eat/clean up without water, and you have to use disposable plates and silverware, which is bad for the environment, but an evil necessity at the time
