Boil Your Water?
Not long ago, our village was put under a boil water advisory due to some maintenance that was happening at the water plant. There wasn’t really much of a risk and Ernie kept on drinking the water from the tap but I decided that it was important to actually go through with boiling, cooling and drinking that water.
It is easy to take things for granted. I wanted to actually experience what it was like to have to go through the inconvenience of doing the work to have clean drinkable water.
The truth is boiled water tastes awful. But it might be important to try this out for a while just to be prepared for something that happens to thousands of people everyday.
