Another one ? Then he'd be using 15-16 gallons a day?
I'd stick with 10 gallons a day, but thats me.

Last time that happened here (if I remember right) was 1977.
Ice storm, no power for a few days... it was fun for me cause I was 9 at the time and that kinda sh!t is fun when you're 9.

Things can only get better M.C.
