Approximately eighteen minutes ago, the water was shut off by the utility to do maintenance work on the system. Hopefully, it'll be back up to function by the time I'm home from work.

This, of course, threw my morning into disarray. Instead of wandering into the computer room to slowly work my way through the day's posts, I washed up first, to avoid surprises (like the hot water shutting off while I'm rinsing my hair in the shower, for example).

Of course, in the grand scheme of things, this is minor. Humanity has spent most of its existence lugging buckets of water from the well, so I think we'll survive a little while without modern plumbing systems.

Hopefully, this isn't setting the tone for the day...
