What I Have Learned While Town On Boil Water Advisory!

This has been a great learning experience. Having a boil water advisory all week. That is so funny to say that, but it is true. I am kind of glad that this happened. Now I can learn from it and see what I need to do, what I need to get, and what can be done to make it better!!

OK first off - I need to stock up on more disposable products , like paper plates, disposable utensils, etc. This is the one thing that I have been having trouble with - Having to figure out how to wash the dishes. LOL The boiling of water is no fun and then it is too hot and I burned my hand the first time I did so dishes the other day. Does not feel good at all. Which is another thing that I learned - I need one of those HUGE stockpots for boiling water in for dishes. Right now I am having to use 2 of my soup pots , which are big, but not big enough for something like this.

Luckily we never drank our city water anyway. So I have plenty of bottled water for drinking and cooking with. I had some bottled water to that had been put into soda bottles etc from the tap that I just have on hand for emergencies. I have 3 of them sitting out in the sun to get hot for washing hands etc. Everything seems to be working out alright. Just the having to wash dishes is what is bothering me. But other than that we are fine I really think that it would be tons worse if the water was not on at all. Then we would have to worry about sanitation stuff. Like being able to flush the toilet is great, but if we had no water at all it would be a lot worse. Would have to figure out something for that. Free Solar Book
