Waterless Tuesday

Today is "Waterless Tuesday". The City is installing new water pipes under the road outside our building, because there are two new fifteen-stor(e)y condominium buildings just completed next door, and they need extra water for their daily showers and multiple flushing toilets, and today is "Connecting Day". This is the third or fourth time they have dug up the road to do pipe work, but they will hopefully finish by "Paving Day" on the 30th. So the 30th is "Drive-less Friday". I hope that's a word. Anyway, I just made it up so it has to be. If Shakespeare could do it.....
All over our apartment are bowls of water, waiting.....
Condominiums next door. A sparkling new three-hole Astroturf putting green was installed yesterday.

Connecting water for the above.

Outside our Athens Creek Lodge Front Door at Nine a.m. Another apartment building is shown across the road...
The taps come on again at five p.m.
Have a nice dry day!

One hole day without water ........so normal for us to have water.........how would it be if we didn't had acces to water a whole week ?
When things like this happen i always think about it.......i feel blessed and lucky that i live in a country where i don't have to think about it.
Bye bye Bianca

You will be glad when they have finished, I'm sure! A day without water sounds like a good excuse for a beer.
