About a year ago Cory and I had a Stake meeting in which our Stake President urged all of us to store water along with the food in our food storage. So over the course of the last year Cory and I have been refilling juice and soda bottles. Boy am I glad we did.
Last night we found that our crawl space had about half a foot of water in it. This was shortly after we discovered a lack of water pressure in our house. It turns out the water under the house is a ground water that has gathered there because the ground is so saturated. An easy fix with a pump. YAY!
The water pressure, however, is another story. It turns out that all the warm weather recently has caused a major run off. It became to much for our local water treatment plant and they will be shutting off the towns water for the next two days for repairs. Thankfully though, Cory and I have more then enough water to drink and wash things for that period of time. I am mighty greatful for our Stake President for being in tune with the spirit, and also very greatful that Cory and I were in tune enough to follow his advice.
