We used a bottle of water to wash her hands - not a big deal.
I checked Facebook and the housing website to see if I'd missed anything important - like an announcement that the water was going to be shut off or that the water pipes had mistakenly or accidentally disrupted. Not a word.
Then the phone rang. From the number, I figured it was telemarketer, so I didn't answer. I'd already talked to three of them today between 10:45 and 12:15, and that's my official telemarketing limit. I was surprised to get a voice mail notice a few seconds later, so I checked it out. Turns out it was a recorded message for our housing area about a boiling notice. At the end of the message, I was referred to the housing website for further information.
Here's the notice from the website:
Okay, the water was off and then back on around 12:00. So the water from 12-3 is okay? Hope so, because I drank a HUGE glass of water between the time the water came back on and the time I got the notice. Color me skeptical. Something not mentioned on the website bulletin but was mentioned on voice mail is that ice should be dumped - two full loads after the ban is lifted. Jeez.
I'd love to know what they think might be in there! Seriously!
