No water, what you stop with first?


It is my third day without water.

If I had paid more attention I should have see this come earlier.
It looks like my well is empty. The hole drilled is probably done by someone who just drilled without investing how or what.
Already weeks ago I started driving to the watertap.
By now I have 24 bottles of two liters I can refill but I need more. I have wolves who need to drink and there's laundry.

Every drop of water is reused.
The toilet needs to be fliushed once or twice a day.
Five wolves drink water.
We drink water.
There are dishes.
It would be nice if we can wash ourselves.
The laundry needs to be done,
hair to be washed and teeth to be brushed.

I no longer clean up and mop floors.
I can not fill the pond or water the plants. My young fruit trees look sad.
There are tree buckets to flush the toilet and wash our hands through the day.
The dishes we reuse and do once or twice a week.


I found this frog in the grass. It turned out to be dead.

Can you live without water?

I drive to a city tap. It's about 9 miles away from where I live.
What would you give up on first if you have no water?

People who drill wells without thinking have a nasty history of draining aquifers. People should study nature before exploiting it.

Anyway, your question is easy: Cars are mobile. You can move them to wash them. The car wash is the first to go.

Laundromats used to be affordable. The last one I visited would let me wash a load of clothes for the HIVE I earn each month.

The last cabin I inhabited had a traditional outhouse. I don't know if such things are still legal. Outhouses don't require water. Some require periodic visits from a pumper truck.

Come to think of it. The cabin didn't have a shower. I think I just had a basin for water and a washing towel.

I swept the floor and rarely mopped.

If I had plants or a garden that were dependent on a depleted well; I would kiss them good bye and let the native flora return as it should be adapted to the climate.

I think I could get down to just doing dishes and water for drinking.

But how often does one really need to do dishes anyway? If one uses only a spoon and eats everything on the plate, then one rarely has to do dishes. I could use a paper towel to wipe off the frying pan. The towel makes great kindling.

Even with this paring down. I am stuck with a gallon or so of water a day.

I would dig a new well or call the one who didn't do it right. You need water it's the first basic need. I sure wouldn't wash the car. Etc. In nl it is forbidden by the government to turn off the water supply. If you need help I hear from you ok?
