Splish, splash...

Yesterday our water was murky brown. Today, well, today it was gone!

Rumours have it that the towns reservoir pump is bust and that it will take 2 days until we get water again...let's hope this is a rumour!

Any ways, I was chilling, watching Heroes, when I heard this rumbling in the parking lot. A fire truck pulled up...my dear neighbour and friend Carly had phoned the fire department to get some water! Nice one Carls, since nearly all the water in the local shops is sold out.

Am considering how lucky I am having water most of the time, should not take that for granted!

I moblogged some images, which you can find on my flickr account.



20 minutes after I posted this the water came back on...still a little dark thou!

    This water situation is crazy. Service delivery is so important. Local government in SA still has alot of ground to cover in this area!!! Some varsity residences havent had water since Saturday!

    ...it is also scary to not that this town doesn't have a backup plan. It's just not on that a town has no water for 2 days...
