Don't Drink the Water!

Here you have water.  Lots of water.  That I'm boiling.  To drink.  And wash dishes.  Because I don't have enough to do around here ;o)

And really because Keesler got a big fat "F" on their "how clean is your water" report card from the Mississippi State Health Department!  Sheesh. 

This means that we all got fliers in our door today telling us there's a boil-water notice in effect for the next two days... at least.  Joy. 

Makes me realize how much I take clean tap water for granted! 

The funniest part about this was that I realized we really only drink water!  At the time we got the notice, all we had in the fridge was a pitcher of tap water with lemon, a tiny amount of old apple juice, three bottle of beer, and a little bit of Chardonnay.   Needless to say, we were feeling a bit thirsty while we waited for the water to cool.  I know, we could have run out to the store for some bottled water... but I was feeling lazy and cheap and eco-friendly. 

So let the boiling begin! 


  1. How often do they test the water? If it's not that often then you've been drinking contaminated water for a while. You probably have already built up immunities!! He he he...sorry about the water thing. I'd freak out too. You know we drink water as much as you!

  2. Oh I'm certain we were drinking the germy water because I didn't get the notice until late in the day on the effective date. Oh well. Thankfully, I'm not too much of a worry-wort about germs and things. You probably influenced that a bit! ;o)
