We have no hot water. I haven't showered. I have washed two whole loads of dishes by heating water in giant soup pots on the stove. Thanks to my new AC vents (and some miscommunication on the part of the installers) the breeze in my kitchen blows out the burners on my gas stove...you know, the one I'm using to heat the water.
All I have to say is... you people who do this in the woods... how crazy are you?
