Psst...there's free water right out of your faucet.
usually the trader joe's wine shop line is londer than the grocery store's next door before a hurricane
@ MartyBUT FOR HOW MUCH LONGER!!!
Too funny. Is the water system going to somehow be shut down? Hold a cup out the window. Lawdy, lawdy. Hep us, hep us. Waters be falling from the sky!
Met Food on 2nd Ave is calm and fully stocked. It gives me hope that I'm not the only one NOT buying into Sandy Hysteria.
2:04, clean water is often one of the first things affected by major flooding.
It takes electricity to pump the water up to your roof. Without electricity there is no water.
Ny hasn't had an interrupted flow of water since 1842. http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/html/drinking_water/history.shtml
"Without electricity there is no water."So before the discovery of electricity everybody just drank dust? I'm so glad I was born in a modern age!
That doesn't mean it's impervious if it is flooded on a major scale...not saying the odds are it will happen this time, but we are on an island in which some parts are below sea level. Doesn't hurt to store some water aside before the storm hits, you don't have to buy it.
when the blackout happened in 2005 my building in chelsea had no power..the toilets didn't flush for 72 hrs..(chelsea was one of the last places in the city to get the power back on )
Back when the con-ed plant had a fire (9 years ago?) my building lost electricity. AND therefore it lost water, since the pumps didn't work. So yes, for some no electricity means no "free water".
Sandy is an awesome natural relief from all of the unnatural shit happening here.
Impervious. Get real.
Always buy bottled water. Would never drink the h2o from these lead trapped systems that deliver no way. Why do you think kids are suffering from so many learning disabilities in alphabet city? They are drinking the water FROM THE TAPS.
marty - no, but now most of it is electrical to pump water inside buildings to upper floors, so like a couple of posters have said, their buildings lost power, then no water.
I can't recall a power outage from a storm around here, only in the summer from overload. The boroughs are another story. Even in the 90s when the east river overflowed and flooded ave c we had power. I think our power lines are underground.
I will help tell me how
