Already the first week of October over with. The condition at home will be drastically change starting Monday.
I don't know if you know that about me but in Canada I live in a trailer in a camping. Soon winter will be upon us, so the camping turn off the water so that the water lines doesn't freeze.
The trailer is built for 4 seasons, heat is not a problem but not having water is. Luckily the lake is just a few feet away, not so luckily the lake freeze solid in winter (around December). This is not a big deal as by the end of October, I'll migration down South to Florida for the winter like so many other snowbirds.
But in the meantime, I have to find alternate way of wetness. The lake will provide plenty of water for the toilet, I just need to fill the buckets. Now that this problem has been flush, I need drinkable water. There is a building at the entrance of the campground where I can fill Gerry can and as a bonus in the building there is showers.
The only problem left, there is no water heater in my home. So if I need hot water (like to do the dishes), I just boil water on the stove.
I don't find it to be a hardship at all, I enjoy going a little minimalist. When I get back to a place where all you have to do to get water is to turn a tab, I appreciate this little luxury more.
