    Folks need WATER!!

    I had 2 days of water, in this heat it was going fast. I drove to a family members home an hour away to fill a rain barrel. Only people I know here where in the same boat I was, running out of water.

    Residents in the County have wells, no power no water.

    My power went on last night around 9pm.

    I will be filling my rain barrels today, if anyone knows folks who need water please tell me.

    Dealing without power is nothing compared to not having Water!
