Last night 30 cities / town, in the boston area, including Boston and the town we are in has a "boil water order". What this means is that before consuming water, including for cooking, we need to boil the water. A main pipe burst yesterday, click here to read more about it. The city of Boston is currently declared a state of emergency.
I heard that there is a mad rush to the store to buy bottled water. The lines were an hour long to buy water. No... I haven't resorted to the store yet to buy water. Luckily our new dwelling is not on the list, so I might resort to cooking meals there or resort to Trader Joe's microwaveable meals. There is no news yet how long this will continue for.
Coincidently, a town in Massachusetts call Concord banned the sale of bottled water because of environmental reasons. Unfortunately this town is not on the "boil water order" list. Click here to read more about it. Wouldn't it be hilarious if they had the "boil water order" and how fast they would to reverse the ban on sale of bottled water?
