power and water outage + 

I just flushed a toilet with melted snow.

Operation is a sucess!

@RussSharek niiiiice

time to fill the bathtub?

re: power and water outage + 

@kemonine

not yet, but an extended stay on 'cold Arrakis' might demand its consideration.

re: power and water outage + 

@RussSharek i'd start from now...

snow is less dense than water and you can always drain the tub later if needed

@kemonine

ooh point.

re: power and water outage + 

@RussSharek 😉

another good option is those big plastic storage tubs

we used to pack snow in them for melt/freeze cycles for building alcohol ice louges at uni...

you already have to boil the water once it's melted may as well keep some stashed away for later as who knows how long things will remain an issue at this juncture

Yeah, we started working on filling the tub until we lose the sun. Also my amazing partner found six gallons of drinkable water.

@RussSharek that's awesome to hear

managing water is a PITA for the kind of scenario you're in

also : stews and soups are amazing and keep forever even if you leave them on a low heat ; they also keep that water intake up and save you from having to boil water to then cool it to then drink it

Oh jeez, how are you holdin up? Are you in an area that has lost power for a significant amount of time?

@Alonealastalovedalongthe

we were without aegular power for a few days. Today we got power back and lost water.

We are ok, and doing some prep work now to allow us to better weather a few bad days.
