Water! Water! But not a drop to drink

I am slowly mending, and getting up and around a bit. However, today the electrical system that powers our pressure pump (that sends water to our plumbing after it gets up from our well) went out. We have a call in to an electrician, but as people on Whidbey tend to work on a “whatever” sort of basis, he had not called us back yet (two hours after I left a message). The “mañana” culture is charming when I indulge myself in it, but very irritating when I want someone to respond to my needs and imperatives. We have some bottled water (in case of the large earthquake that has not struck us yet), and we are going through it surprisingly quickly.
