That's going to be our new phrase now when all Hades breaks loose. Over the weekend we got a letter in our door telling us we were on a 'Boil Water Advisory'. Stories have been changing over the past few days, but what matters is that massive amounts of manure was dumped into our town water source setting off alarms for contaminants.

Until further notice, all our restaurants have been shut down by the Health Department as a precautionary measure. Our schools only had Uncrustables & Frosted Flakes to serve at lunch time for $4 a pop which is $1.50 more than the usual. (thank heavens my girls are brown bagging it) The boiled water looks questionable and I told the hubby that if he brushes his teeth with that water to expect no kissy kissy to go on for a loooooong time.
Don't laugh when I tell you that if you want to prepare for catastrophe, come visit us. This one glitch in our daily lives has caused a fracas you don't want to be involved in. There are a lot of highly upset people in our tiny town for a variety of reasons. Not the least of which is that unless they want to visit friends in the next town to bathe, we might be stuck taking s#*t showers for the next 6 months. (If you know me, you know I'm not a regular curser, but the humorous alliteration was too good to pass up)
Enjoy the simple conveniences folks, even doing the much maligned laundry duty becomes far more appreciated when you can't just throw it in and turn the machine on without worrying that you might be dunking your undies in something unmentionable.
And that, my friends, is the true poop! Smells like a winner, don't it?
