Has left us without clean water all this week, and no drinking water. We have 8 breaks in the water mains. We can't flush or shower or do laundry. At one point this week, there were only one or two roads open in and out of Ames. They shut down I35 and Hwy 30.

The Skunk River crested at 26.8 feet...and flood stage is 14 ft.

Thanks for bearing with me, if I don't keep it as tidy as usual.

Well...look at it this way...at least despite all that trouble...
you are still able to do your perfume sales gig today.

I really don't have much time to discuss this issue right now. I have a show today that I'm doing to sell my perfumes, and I need to get ready.

And you are all safe.

Some folks would not be so fortunate and most likely some are not.

It is so hard when things like this happen. I have been through hurricanes and it is an awful time !

laundry and showers can wait!! lol, some people don't do those things even once aweek where there IS water...but what are you drinking ?? is water being shipped in? or are you going out of town to get some? i guess at the show you can probably find some...

good luck with the perfumes!!

Hopefully you will get some relief this week.
Sending thoughts of safety for you and yours

Shouldn't this thread be in Gaia's Garden?

That is NOT to belittle what Abs is going through. It sounds pretty rough.

I had my "stroke" thread moved to KTAA because I felt it was a personal experience thread which seemed better suited to be just another personal thread of mine at KTAA.
(which whilst being medical in nature, was not really suited for Health And Healing)

I do agree, this thread is suited to Gaia's Garden....
as it kinda fits:

quote:
Gaia's Garden
Dedicated to Mother Earth and all those who Love her; feel free to discuss ecology and ecosystems, gardening, the environment, and any related subjects

or KTAA as a personal "this is what is going on in my life" thread.

I just wanted to update people as to why I wasn't around much to keep things tidy. And to ask for patience if things aren't moved immediately when they are posted in the wrong places.

Of course this would be helped immensely, if people would just post them in the proper places to begin with...
