When It Rains It Pours

I sure wish it would rain. The water kind, not the bad stuff that keeps raining down on me. Today I came home to find my water tank draining. I guess I didn't get it completely shut when I attempted to thaw it yesterday morning. 150 gallons gone just like that.

I have 80 gallons left, 40 of those are usable, meaning they are above the outlet hole. The forecast say possible rain on Tuesday but I can't count on that. I think it's time to talk to the neighbor about a little water delivery. They offered once but I didn't need it then. I think I need it now. Sure I could make do by filling up gallon jugs at work (like I did today) but I would really like to get things functioning here again.

As for my other showering place, I turned on the pump in the RV and it just ran and ran. I went to look outside and saw a fountain of water coming from the back. The plug for the city water connection seems to be leaking badly. I hope I can just buy a replacement plug and it isn't the metal connector also. The metal looks corroded so it could be the problem. If that's the case I will need to call the RV repairman...the one that charges $70 to show up and doesn't take credit cards. Ok, how long can I put that repair off?

Looks like the universe, or whoeverm knows you are almost free of the rat race and wants to drag you back in again.
I wish I could think of something helpful but although I have suffered burst pipes I have never lived without mains water.
Those puppies are super cute by the way

I know! So close and now so many problems! At least I didn't quit my job yet. That would have been a big problem!
