Our water supply has just been switched back on following a burst water main on the estate in the middle of last night. It was only off for nine hours and for most of that we were asleep. However, not being able to clean our teeth or flush the loo all morning has been traumatic. I do not think I will be going "off-grid" any time soon. In fact, I think I will send a donation to "WaterAid." We often do not appreciate how fortunate we are to live in a country where everyone has access to clean water on tap.
