It is funny to see people freak out about this. People are rushing to stores to stock up on water, and all of the schools are being closed today. If the water went out in Malawi, it was a bummer, but nothing stopped. We had to filter or boil our water anyway, and hopefully we had some stored up. I remember trying to wash my hands at school only to realize, "Oh, they've turned the water off today," and simply using hand sanatizer instead. And here, everyone is stopping daily life because of the water situation.
Anyway, hopefully we will have water soon so that schools will open back up. And we still have gas and electricity and fast internet, so I'm not complaining!
