In early June there was flooding here. All that icky water from the cities was poured into the lake that we live next to, not to mention all the sewer systems that drained into the lake. So the recommendation is to have our well water tested. With our neighbors, we tested the water and it came back contaminated. We stocked up on bottled and distilled water. We retested it and should find out the results today -- we are hopeful because they didn't call us yesterday. But then yesterday our water was all dirty. Sigh. We think the neighbors filter is clogged and have to get that fixed today. I boiled a gallon of distilled water to wash bottles. I have a dishwasher full of dishes and tons of laundry to do. Oh, and the baby could use a bath. Amazing how you realize how much you rely on something when you don't have it.
