5 Gallons For A Dollar

Gee, I wish gas was that cheap. I loaded up my 5 gallon jug and 5 ice tea gallon jugs and headed down to the closest convenience store. Their water machine offers drinking water 25 cents per gallon or 5 gallons for a dollar. Since it was my first time there, I filled the 5 gallon container for a dollar and then paid my 25 cents a gallon x 5. Next time I will be an expert and I will try switching my gallon jugs quickly so that I save 25 cents. (Isn't that exciting? I know, I'm easily amused.)

It rained a little bit today. Still nothing like the downpour we should be getting but at least I'm getting some free water. The laundry is finished, the RV water tank is full, the trees didn't need water because it rained. I am ready to face another week.

Living in the s\Southeast, I miss out on things like drinking water machines. I never would have guessed. Is it just their tap water?

I was reading the sign on it. It said 30 micron sediment filter, 5 micron sediment filter, reverse osmosis, ultra-violet, and something else. I'm surprised there's any H2O left after all that! I remember water machines outside grocery stores when I was younger. I didn't understand who would need them. Now I do.
