All I can say is boooooooo!
Add to that the idiots behind us lighting off fireworks this morning...
I'm told it is because people are starting to fire up the coal for heat now that temps have dropped, but I don't know whether to believe it or not.
This comes just one day after my water was shut off without notice and a load of laundry was ruined by the resulting brown water that ran out our pipes once it was turned back on. Management told us it was "safe" to use the tap after we ran the water through the pipes for a few minutes, but each time we turned it off and back on, it ran brown.
That can't be good.
Thank goodness for bottled water!
Ahhhh, America (mainly Ventura county), I miss the hell out of you!
