Hi everyone, wanted you to know the update on the property and water situation. It is all still a little precarious. We are still in “emergency mode”. We never leave the property alone; there is always one of us here because it is still too dangerous. The men have not finished clearing off the rubble from the burn site, it will be a few more work days next week. This is not work that volunteers can do.
In regards to Saturday Clean up Day and our water situation: We have leaking joints which may mean that when the plumber comes on Saturday; the joints may have to be fixed before we can get the whole system going and they have dry and harden first. Anyway, for your consolation and personal comfort two porta-potties have been ordered for today and tomorrow.
We have bottled water too.
Cleaning will be difficult if it requires water! We can do a little arranging and sweeping in the cabin for the upcoming groups, but…that is about it unless things change and since they change every 24 hours, who knows it may be all back in working order by the time you come. I will write again tonight to update you.
St. Florien is the patron of fire fighters, and used one single bucket to put out a fire in a whole town. Now I know why only one bucket… he had water problems too. The Lord gives exactly what you need when you need it!
