The water main's still flowing outside .... 5 hours later. Go water company! I asked the guy sitting down there what was up and he said everybody's gone hunting this weekend, so nobody's around to fix it. So they're going to let it run overnight. Great. His only concern is that it's pulling away all the rocks underneith our driveway and the thing's going to cave in when a car drives over it in the morning, so he's going around to all the houses and telling them to be careful driving over it. Great.

I'm going to the beach, I guess. Couldn't get in touch with anybody to go with me, though. Nick's leaving tomorrow, Julie's at some concert, Mike and Garrett are unreachable.... Kinda sucks.

Re: not that you care.....

pretty much true. people do anyway, but the place i work (a gas station) got fined 3000 dollars for using too much water (cause of the ice machine)...you get fined like somewhere around the neighborhood of $1000 dollars if you are caught washing your car/watering your plants. our lake is like...10 feet deep.
our town only has about 1000 people...but we've been on cnn, nbc..and so on. A little town named "Throckmorton, maybe you've heard of it...sadly.

Yeah, I keep reading about the Texas drought situation .... won't you guys pack up and go elsewhere before you die, though? Come up to the northwest .... we have tons of water.

Re: not that you care.....

well if that option was available... *I* would have been there years ago..i hate it here. Um, we have too many old HICKS here whom are too proud to pack up and give up their cattle, which is stupid cause they are just gonna die anyway, cause the tanks are about all dry....also, they'd be made fun of up there....they couldn't handle that.....
