Anyone ever see Rollerball?

For the past two days, a problem with the water treatment facility that serves the entire Bridger Valley has been malfunctioning. Rumors of the cause include difficulty with the new equipment, computer malfuntions, and sabotage by Ninja Cowboy Gremlins. Ok, I made that last one up, but it would be kinda cool.

The local schools and restaurants have all been closed for the past few days. We just got running water back today, but there's a boil order in effect, so at this time we can't use it for more than laundry, toilets, or bathing. (don't swallow any water in the shower!)

Naturally, the levelheaded townsfolk are handling this in a rational and responsible fashion:


Run on Water
This was next to the doorway of the Grocery store. Thankfully, everything should be back in order by Friday if nothing else breaks down. Nice to see people are as panicy here as they are back home.

I never figured out if its not safe to drink its good enough to bath it.

Yeah, that doesn't sit well with me either. I'm still not getting in the shower until we get the "All Clear".
