Water, water, everywhere...

We have only one working water treatment plant in Nashville, and our clean water reserves were down by 15% yesterday. Even worse, they're down by 63% today. Apparently, people have started hoarding water, which is putting us on a slippery slope to shortages and contamination.

I have taken a number of conservation measures, myself. I'm using bottled water to take sponge baths, brush my teeth, and wash my dishes. I am only flushing my toilet every third time I use it. I am not running my dishwasher, washing machine, shower, or ice-maker.

Also, we may be looking at both a gas shortage and a diet Coke shortage, because the distribution centers for both of these items were flooded.
