So an update to what has been going on.
My in laws went out at 10 pm Saturday to buy us water. They had to go to a few stores because lots of places were sold out. Finally they brought us 12 2liter bottles. They offered their place for me to take a bath etc but at that time we declined. So...I heated water on the stove and put the water in a big bucket and hubby had a "bath" or at least washed himself by scooping water over himself. Then I did the same and by the time we did that and washed dishes (it is hot and humid so leaving dirty dishes was not an option) and flushed the toilet once, we were close to being out.
Hubby decided he couldn't wait until 10 am (when his father was going to pick him up to take him to get water from the army)because he really wanted to have water to flush the toilet so at 2am hubby decides to go out and buy water. We have a 7-11 about 2 minutes from our house but they were sold out. So, he walked to the next convenience store...they were sold out. So...he went to the next one ultimately walking about 20 minutes. At 2 am. Without phoning me to tell me what he was doing. I was getting nervous. About 45 minutes later I hear this banging on the door and there is my hubby cradling (like a baby) a bag filled with 6 2 liter bottles of water. It weighed a ton! And apparently he originally had 2 bags with 3 bottles in each but the bags burst open as he was walking home (Seriously....imagine at 2:30 am seeing some guy with many bottles of water breaking free from the bags on the road!) so he asked the 7-11 guys for a bag even though he bought them from a different store.
Anyway, we woke up and finally there was water. It was really brown at first but eventually the city cleaned the pipes and all is now ok.
But just now we were watching the news and the pictures are just awful. So many people lost their homes and many lost their lives in the surrounding areas. In the 11 years I have lived here, I have never seen this and it is still raining on and off.Hopefully it will end soon.
