It’s Day 2 of the Great Austin Boil All Your Waterpalooza.

Mrs. Ttyymmnn sent me out yesterday morning to buy some bottled water, along with the rest of the city. Traffic was backed up onto the road outside Costco, and the parking lot was completely full. So I bailed on Costco and went to Lowe’s. Place was empty. Bottled water is pretty much completely sold out in Austin, but the stores are trucking more in today. We’re going to be relying mostly on boiled water. I’ve got five large water jugs full of boiled water, plus three pots on the stove already boiled. We brushed teeth last night with that water, and rinsed dishes with it. It struck me how doing this on a daily basis would reduce our water use significantly.
