This morning I woke up and turned on the faucet to wash my face. The moment I heard the hiss, I knew there was trouble. No water. It’s a long hike up the mountain to the tank, but hopefully, the tank is just empty. And if it’s empty, then I have to know whether it all leaked out, or someone left a line open, or if we just used it all. If we used it all, that’s easy enough to remedy; we will just begin our later summer water rationing. It takes about 24 hours to fill the tank and from there we will will know to only use what we really need, wash only one or two loads a day, and no tub filling for hot soaks. If it’s broken somewhere, well, this will be my first time figuring out how to fix it on my own since my husband jumped ship.
At least I had a gallon of water so I could make some coffee this morning while thinking about my game plan to fix this issue.
