WAAAAAAHHHHHHH!   5 comments

I got it all lined up.

Called the local pool store, found out who to call for water.

Called them Tuesday.  Swallowed my shock at the price and said yes, send a truck, please.

As they instructed, called back the next day to confirm (?)

Made all the plans around a delivery at an unknown time.

Got a call at 8:30 this morning.  Excited!  They were coming earlier than I could have hoped for!  Only to have excitement quickly turn to dismay as she said “We can’t deliver your water.”  Not “we can’t deliver you water this morning”  or “Today”  but we can’t deliver your water.  Period.

It seems when they got the tanker truck out to fill it, they found it was dead and would have to be hauled to the garage, and they had no idea when it would get there or what would be wrong or when it would be fixed.  They had no other ideas of what I could do. The fire department doesn’t deliver water.

So, I thanked her nicely and hung up.  After a few moments of swearing and crying thinking, I called the pool place back.  they gave me the name of a company they use – a bit farther away. I called the number and did as instructed in the message.  left my name, my number, the size of the pool and where I live.  But was disheartened to hear “I’ll get back to you when I get in tonight” which leads me to believe no water this weekend.  I could be wrong, he could deliver on Saturday.  Of course, we will be gone all day.  How can it work?  Will he accept that I will leave him a check in the door?  What if he can’t find the place?  It isn’t really on GPS.

There is another pool store that I will continue to try to reach (busy busy busy) but I would be surprised if they know of a place that my first one didn’t.

The hose is on.  Half an hour at a time.

It’s up over my ankles now.

The weather report says high 80’s all weekend, going even higher into next week.  Perfect pool weather.

I’ll show them.  I’ll go knit.

  1. Aw, so sorry about your water troubles. I hope a truck can get to you soon. Using the hose to fill up can be costly and take forever. I hope you can get water before the weekend. Love the pattern on your pool bottom. Cute feet 🙂

  2. Ugh, that sucks about your water! Hopefully you can get some delivered this coming week, then maybe next weekend will also be hot, perfect for swimming.

    One can hope.
