On our first day without running water Ava said "...it probably won't come back for months" and I chided her for being over-dramatic. But here we are, four months later, and it just keeps getting worse. First off it was on for a couple of hours, twice a day. Then for only one hour a day. And now just a 30 minute trickle every other day...
As you can see, it's all hands to the buckets when we hear a rare gurgle of running water. We have had quite a lot of rain recently, but presumably nowhere near enough. Having said that, the rest of the city seems to have water nearly all the time, which is frustrating. Apparently the lowered pressure hinders them pumping it up our hill. I've started taking advantage of a shower in an office in one of our school branches. It's something of a trek across the city, but worth it once or twice a week. Otherwise it's all flannels and strip-washes!
