Yeah, apparently it looks like all the water in the city will be shut off, for two full days. Not our zone, it seems, but the complete city.
My first reaction is something I still hold to: some government official must have either screwed something up that needs to be fixed in a hurry, or else some high official made a command decision while on a power-trip: “Well, then turn off the water for a couple of days and fix XYZ.”
Meanwhile, we peanuts and other vegetables will be without water tomorrow and the next day. I don’t know how people will flush toilets, or cook; it seems to me that both the public bath houses and the restaurants shall have to close for the interim, too. It’s unimaginable. I suppose I’ll carry my camera around in case I see anything truly shocking.
As one of my friends said tonight, “It’s like this highly technical, developed country is smashing into the third world, now.” Ah well… more on that later.
