Notes from the cold, part 4

- Today's weather seemed downright balmy compared to last week. Sunshine, warmth and clear blue skies, that is the El Paso I know and love. That frozen, icy landscape of last week, NO, that isn't my city.

- Water service is fine now, but the part to repair the backyard pipe is out of stock in every store. So we're still turning off all the water to the house most of the time to avoid a possible disaster.

- No more water restrictions at 10 p.m. tonight, but I feel bad thinking that is a license to start wasting resources as usual. Wouldn't the world be better off if we all took a 5-minute shower every other day instead of a 15-minute one every single day?
