it is pretty scary. i told a friend today, who hadn't heard yet. they have NO water stored. we have a little, but not much.
the main reason that i'm terrified, is because the town is talking about trucking in water, and buying off of private wells. they quoted 100,000 per month cost wise last night on the news. our water is already INSANELY expensive. it's worse than it was in FL. so, add 100,000 that the town is forking out to BUY water for us, to our already insane bills and i don't even want to think what it's going to cost us for water.
plus, if the resevoir freezes ( it's only at 20%) in the next 60 days then there is NO water at all
we already conserve, but i know there is more we can do. i haven't watered our garden in weeks ( add no rain and you can see the result
) and 3 of my kids bathe together, and not that frequently. i too shower infrequently ( yikes!!) and my 5 week old babe has only had 3 baths at home ( hiding). we do a TON of laundry, but we have a front loader so it uses less water. we've been on mandatory water restrictions since june. and i think it's only rained three times ( and mind you i don't mean poured) since july 4.
guess i'll have to google water conservation.
