No water in Jackson, MS
So there is basically no clean drinking water in Jackson, Mississippi. They are in big trouble, right? This water crisis has me walking around in bug-eyed awe, and re-thinking what I did yesterday (got rid of some glass bottles of water!). Yikes. Advocate for your local water systems to be kept in good order.
So far, even in years of tremendous flooding of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers which are the sources of my city's water, we have not had difficult outages. We did have, just this year, a scare with some untreated flood water getting into the system, but we lucked out that the water kept testing safe. Had it not, it would have affected a huge swath of the city.
I've increased my water storage gradually. Having obtained more secure storage than cleaned-out 750 mL wine bottles is what made me feel comfortable yesterday to get rid of the wine bottles. Today, though, I wonder....
Yeah; dear Jackson!
Anyone else particularly thinking about water today?
