How dry I am…Holy Water!

02Jan11

Well, you won’t believe it, but there is hardly any water in Ireland. Yes, that’s right, Holy Catholic Ireland, the Emerald Isle (because it is soooo green).

We are in the midst of a serious water shortge. No running water for 4 days now. Flushing toilets with bottled water! Our hot water tanks are still working but, unfortunately, they fill only periodically.

This shortage is country-wide in Ireland. Reservoir problems, apparently.

Might be the boiled water and sponge bath business for a few days. 

To paraphrase  Cicero – O tempore! O mores! O aqua!  Somehow, I do not think the Irish population is running the risk of dehydration or drought.
