I'm not lost, I just don't know where I'm going.
But I'm determined to enjoy the journey.

女暗部 - bewilderment / distress

That's it, then. I've lost water. When I try to turn on the tap, there's a bit of a gurgling sound and then.. nothing. No water.

This is going to be interesting. I don't have an emergency water supply on hand, but I made sure to refill my water filter pitcher last night, so it's not like I'll thirst. And there's loads of reasonably clean snow I could melt.. But it's going to suck to not be able to flush the toilet or wash my hands afterwards. >_<

And the best part is that I have no idea how long this is going to last. I'm guessing "until it rains again" since I get my water from a private well located a ways upriver.

Can you melt snow in a bucket to flush the toilet? That is what we did when out water pipes froze one winter and we were out of water for a week.

That's a really useful suggestion. Thanks!

I've also melted some snow, boiled it, and will put that through my water filter after it's cooled down a bit, for drinking water. I'm actually coping with not having water better than I had thought. Next I'll melt some snow and heat the water so I can do the dishes.

The hardest part for me was not getting a shower...we ended up renting a hotel room in town just so we could go and wash up, haha. I hope your water comes back soon!
