  •  hang in 'til next Monday! (4+ / 0-)

    i gather there is no running water in as well as no pipe-drainage out!  that sure is basic.  at least when we used to go camping we could scrub everything with dirt and then only needed to rinse with clear water.

    earth and water were far less polluted and far less rife with exotic microbes at the time....

    •  Here there's water in, and I can (5+ / 0-)

      just carry the water over and dump it in the toilet, which works fine. This is a pipe blockage.

      At my house, no running water but the drains work, although we'll be using a composting toilet because I am not hauling three gallons of water in the truck from elsewhere just to flush the damn toilet when we can handle it another way in a perfectly sanitary fashion.

      The main issue for us is really going to be that of heat at least for a bit. Forties and up we can handle (though Bear will start getting asthma attacks around 80.) But the twenties and thirties we've been having are very difficult.

      When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.
