...don't drink the brown water / don't eat the speckled ones, they're not ripe yet...
I am sitting here drinking the last of the bottled water in our house in my coffee machine. The entire city of Van has been issued a water quality warning. The intense flooding has resulted in extensive landslides into the reservoirs. All water must be boiled for 1 minute before drinking and toothbrushing, to eliminate threat of E. coli. What I find strange about this is that E. coli is normally not associated with landslides - it's associated with human wastewater. I suspect that we aren't hearing the whole story about the brown water...
Two nights ago I came home to our landlord standing precariously on the edge of the roof, wrapping it a third tarp. There had been another 'DWOIP' incident in the kitchen. Fortunately, I missed most of that excitement, so that I was good and ready for the carnage in the living room.
After dinner, K and I decided to cuddle in with a movie. I walked towards the sofa, and stepped on a pile of feathers.
Boxes are still missing. sigh. off to a day of meetings.
