Hoo Boy - Updated

Did I mention it's hot and humid?


About 100,000 Prince Georges County, MD, residents just got word (as in just last night) that due to a failing water main their water will be shut off tonight.  And be off for days. 

That's gonna be right unpleasant.

Update -  Seems that that main can be replaced without turning off everybody's water with only 24 hours notice after all.  Makes me wonder if WSSC didn't get taken to the woodshed.  Also makes me wonder how stupid you have to be to order this done the first way in the middle of a heat wave when the alternative obviously existed.

  1. Yeah, but fortunately most of those folks in PG don't have jobs to be at so it won't matter if they don't get showers.

    1. Ha. Amazing the difference between PG and Monkey Counties, yet PG pays taxes just as high.

  2. I tried to take some pictures of the flowers this morning but it was so humid the lens kept fogging over.

    I save water for such things. Doesn't make it any cooler but at least I can pour a jug over my head in the shower.

    1. Living near rivers is handy if the power goes out in the heat.

  3. Well here's hoping their 'letricity doesn't get cut off too, or that situation is going to get a might ripe.

    1. Thus making public transportation even more problematic.
