Taking Things for Granted – Agua

I admit it, I am guilty!

After being so careful about my water usage for months, when the pump was installed to send water to the roof, I was giddy with excitement. Water, was mine, whenever I needed it!

With the prospect of water at the turn of the handle, each and every day, I got a little extravagant. Not a lot, but I treated myself to a long, hot shower or two, or three — okay, a couple of weeks worth. It just feels so good to ease into the day under a stream of hot water.

Well, I paid for my extravagance (don’t we all eventually?) because I woke up this morning to a pitiful dribble which signaled the end to my showering, at least for now.

In investigating the situation, it seems that “la bomba esta defectivo y no esta trabajador.” (The pump is defective and it’s not working.) So it is back to carrying a pot of hot water up three flights of stairs. That will teach me.

Bucket shower supplies

Showering essentials: hot water, cold water, and a calibrator….

 

Did you know that water weighs 8.34 pounds per gallon (at 62 degrees)?

Now that raises the question, does it weigh more at 200 degrees or less when it is frozen solid? After all ice floats.

Hmmmm, inquiring minds want to know.
