Water Plan?

Particularly for those of you in the southeastern United States; do you have an emergency water plan?  What sort and how much? Do you think it is necessary, eminent or just prudent?

    And no, a pallet of Code Red in the back of your closet doesn’t count, Cyberduck.

    I’ve got a gallon bottle of Drakkar Noir at the ready. I kid. I don’t think an emergency plan will be necessary. While rumor has it that Georgia is planning a “Don’t Move to Georgia” ad campaign (and that goes double for people who can fix our schools) to conserve water, I have faith in the cyclical trends of rainfall and expect us to catch up during winter and possibly surpass previous years. All that said, I’d really rather see Georgia save money on this ad campaign and dig a new reservoir or two. I know Mystech would support me in any plan that involved flooding Alpharetta.

    At my house, we’re doing little things to conserve and are considering bigger things. Our shower takes about five minutes to heat up in the morning. So we’re filling a jug with that cold water which we’ll later use to fill the dog bowls and water our indoor plants. A bigger, better, but more expensive conservation solution is installing a “chili pepper appliance,” which circulates cold water back into the water heater until it’s warm enough for a shower. Beats running water down the drain, but at $180 for the gadget and likely hundreds more getting an electrical outlet installed under my bathroom sink, I’ll probably stick with the jug method.

    Alpharetta is “the pits” and what is a reservoir but a pit filled with water? Seems like a natural progression to me.

    I love the idea of the chili-pepper device you mention. I’d like to see more inline capture devices for grey water from sinks and tubs as well. For those that low-flow toilets aren’t feasible for, there is also the “brick” solution which displaces space in the toilet reservoir and saves water.

    Back to the original topic though, perhaps a few stacks of bottled water or better yet a 30-gallon emergency water supply might not be a bad idea.

    I think the Christians should drink whatever God and Sonny Perdue can give ’em. For everyone else, there’s Mastercard.

    I’d rather see Christians praying for rain than telling me what I can and can’t do with my body, in the privacy of my own home, or that I can’t be with that person cause I’m a guuurrl and so is she.

    Though, yeah, Sonny shouldn’t have, ya know, done all that on taxpayer time.

    I don’t think we really have a water plan. We’ve been trying to manage water, but some days there’s only so much bathing you can cut down with a toddler, honestly.

    I’m a bit worried about this winter, honestly. It’s been unseasonably warm up to this week for the most part, but there has been no rain to accompany that up to this point. That’s a bad combination.

    And this region wouldn’t be the first nice lush area to go dry in the history of the world.

    By the way…

    Can we not talk about turning Alpharetta into a giant reservoir?

    I work up there.

    Sorry, no mercy. Alpharetta has invoked my eternal loathing. Reservoir status would go a long way to redeem it. I advise that you and your employer move or build an ark.
