Rain is a good thing when it brings up the levels in the rivers. What happened in West Virginia is a crime. It makes you wonder how many waterways are just like Elk River right now.
Seeing the lines of people waiting to fill whatever containers they had with usable water reminded me not to take the liquid for granted. To not be able to use your regular supply for the simplest of things – washing rinsing, etc…. Forget counting how many glasses of what have been drunk for the day – how many different ways do we use water?
The power goes out frequently here and that’s easy to get by without it (flashlights, windows, books to read…). But water?
At least there’s hope for West Virginia, the possibility of clean-up to restore the river, the water supply back to potability. What about places in the world where even that isn’t available?
