Why does this matter to me here in North Carolina? Well............this can happen anywhere. From what I've read stores are being wiped out of their bottle water supplies. I imagine even those folks who are mortally against bottled water are having to buy it, IF they can find it. I mean if you can't boil it you pretty much have to purchase bottle water unless you have those really big water barrel things. I dare say the majority of us don't have those but I could be wrong.
Anyhoo this is a good but sad reminder to all of us to have our ducks in a row. Buy bottled water before it becomes a precious commodity. Even if you hate the idea of buying bottled water, it can come in handy in cases like Toledo, Ohio.
