Thirsty on Capitol Hill


Thirst quenched yet?

Walking through Capitol Hill, I spied this occupied front stoop. If you look closely, that’s 10 water jugs.

10 five-gallon water jugs or 50 gallons of water drunk.

50 gallons would be 100 days of water at an average of two quarts/liters of water per day. Or 50 if it were two, maybe 30 if it were three or more. Regardless, they would need to be a thirsty household.

Or is this the sign of a mystery “water club” I’ve heard government workers share?

What’s your theory?

    I use a couple of quarts of water just to boil pasta. Maybe they don’t want to cook with the DC water? If there are a few people in the house using it for drinking and cooking, it wouldn’t take long to go through that much water at all.

    The Library of Congress has those water jugs delivered to us because of lead found in our water, we had to turn off the water fountains. In order to provide water to staff & visitors, we have those waters.
