As at Meribah

Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink.

There is water in the well. It was only a fuse. REPEAT, IT WAS ONLY A FUSE, a something starter something fuse that did something and was loose or bad or broken which made it stop doing whatever it did that made pretty water come out of shiny faucets.

deep down, just a doo-hickey deal.

So the emergency lasted only hours, but oh! there was an emergency alas-in-this-dry-and-thirsty-land-we-will-strive-we-will-survi WHY ARE YOU USING THE BOTTLED WATER FOR OATMEAL DON'T YOU REALIZE WE'RE IN A CRI-SEES!!

It wasn't half as good as the last time this happened, when the Pater Familias was in the shower and it ceased! and his hair was full of soap and we had to break out the reserves and hand him bowl-fulls through the crevice of the door all the while making wretched attempts to control ourselves until he was de-sudsed, and all day after that he looked "mad, and silly".

All the excitement is over now. Please return to your houses your haunts or wherever you feel at home and safe.

Have you ever done some laughing that makes the contrast between that and the next feeling you get, stark, and staring? It is still and a few grey degrees outside. I am so cold and the thought of Winter makes me want to cry.
