Since 31st of July, 2018… No Hot Water

Every year (Here in Moscow, Russia.) we pray to the “Hot Water Gods”. They are a persnickety group of gods. Everything has to be perfect and exact before they turn our hot water back on. It is a process requiring great precision and expertise. I am sure they work hard 24/7 until it is done? Never mind why they have to do such a thing in the first place? It is something that the gods do every year and I feel they enjoy such moments as we have to take cold showers and wash everything in cold water….Today we hope that we have sufficiently sacrificed appropriately to the “Hot Water Gods” and thus they will allow us a trickle of hot water to cleanse our souls with…. They are a very powerful god and we do not want to upset them…

Hot Water Here and Hot Water There…

Today (13th of August, 2018) is the day that it should get turned back on… (?)

But the day is half over and we still do not have hot water?

Therefore, such is life in the big city…

It’s the Famous Happening – Shut the Hot water Down

Maybe I should burn meat on an altar to these persnickety gods?
