Summer heat

Weather flash: It's 94 in the shade here, and very humid. Granted, it's not as hot as Iraq. But it's still hot. We would very much appreciate some rain very soon. Mom's garden is suffering.

Our water pump broke.
We have no drinking water, no hot water, and worst of all, no running water. We can get cold water from the basement, but that's it. We've been washing our hair in buckets; at least, those of us who care about cleanliness have, and have been carrying and heating water on the stove to wash dishes. I would tell you what we are doing with the toilet situation, but I don't think it would be proper to say in such a public spot. The whole situation is annoying, but not too terrible. It looks like it will be fixed by the time I get home from work tomorrow.

As I write this it is 10.1 Celcius (50.2 Farenheit).

I thought you lived on a farm. Nebraska doesn't have running water?

Ha ha.
We aren't on rural water because it's terrible. We have a well and we pump our own water. The pump broke, thus no running water.

No, we don't add fluoride. Don't need it! We got our pump back on Thursday.
