Well, just in case that doesn't work out, you are welcome to come over here. Hubby is working at the regional office today so it is just me and the dog and cat for a few hours.

Sure hope they get your water back on soon. It is a huge inconvenience for you, I am sure.

I am feeling sympathy ickiness over here! I hate not being able to shower.

Also could head over to the local Y for a shower (assuming you have a membership?).

I ended up going to Wesley Chapel. Had some errands to do and then church....when I got home, the water was back on.

Thanks Ani for your very kind offer. Guess that I was kind of panicked at the time!!

PS: chgo: do NOT have a YMCA membership, but, that would have been a good idea!!
