…it pours. And sometimes, you still don’t have enough water.
In the floods of the past couple days, the pump for Mae Sot city water went under. Starting near the border and moving east, most of the city lost water.
As we were addressing the chaos of our own home, I heard these reports, but I was just thankful it wasn’t affecting us. I didn’t think to mention it to my better half, who is much better at the common sense thinking and would have known to check and see if our water was truly still on.
Because we don’t have water constantly in Mae Sot, we have a large reserve tank behind our house. When the water is on at different times through the day, it fills up for us to use as we need. Thus, we rarely run out of water.
But then while I was cooking and cleaning after the large group of neighbors in our home, I didn’t think that we still had water simply because of the tank. We really have no idea when we really lost water and the tank stopped filling, but we do know that last night, in the middle of the third load of laundry, we ran out of water.
And now, the dishes are piling in the sink again and the laundry remains piled up. Somehow, in the middle of so much water there just isn’t enough.
