    I don’t know about you, but I have COMPLETE confidence in our officials to get this right…especially considering they told people not to buy water after they told everyone to buy water and there was no water left to buy
    People buying water by the gross. It's really shocking African-Americans would panic buy water in this country. The people of Flint & Jackson never had any trouble at all. Cripes, we are basically a 3rd world country.

    Right and agreed, but not sure I’d call it panic buying when the city gave everyone direction to stop drinking tap water like 2 hours later

    Lol basically what we were saying - they definitely just decided it's better to tell everyone to stock up on their poison water because it's safer than everyone killing each other in the streets over a 20 oz Poland Springs.

    We already had about 10 gallon jugs from a trip we tool last year and a few other things but I'm sure the shelves emptied by us as well.

    I think I saw Cherry Hill Wegmans was out.  We were on our way back from Baltimore shortly after we heard the news, so stopped on the way back in Delaware

    haha, exactly. Confidence inspiring, for sure! I wish I got a chance to watch more of the local news yesterday. Am sure there was some gold in there.

    Yeah, panic buying isn't the right term. Let's just start a company and then you can just dump shit into water, yay America.

    Finally figured out this morning Delco water doesn't come from the Delaware River. Info to pass on. They have not communicated very well about this.

    Pretty sure it's mostly all Springton Lake.

    lol never been a bottled water person, and, well, now here I am.

    The most important part about all of this is - fuck Bristol, and Bucks County frankly, to the greatest degree.
    EDIT: oh, and, yes, double fuck you to Trinseo

    Bottled water is generally a massive scam (especially the Pepsi/Coke "purified" water which is literally the city's tap water) that gets propped up by these kinds of events. For our intents & purposes all that plastic will never go away.

    Hot tip: whatever you've got in your portfolio/401k/IRA/what-have-you, put some water ETFs and water storage tech in there. My general view is Capitalism is a scam but you have to play the game, so have water reserves in there (the $ kind) when the world goes to absolute shit. At least make some money when we're fighting for whatever's left.

    Anyway, from everything I'm reading, this is all very low level concern. I'll take the next couple days to drink non-tap but then back I'll go. 8k gallons in a river of millions (billions?) of gallons of water is very small.

    But with even that said - I would like to see the chemical company hung up by their buster browns.

    Team tap water

    And yes, agreed that it seems like a low level of concern, BUT, it also seems like something that they told the 6th biggest city in the United States to stop drinking the water.

    I get it's hard though, I certainly don't want to be in the position. But some people actually sign up for this shit, so they should know what they're taking on.

    One thing I can agree on with people I talk to about the races coming up - whoever becomes mayor, I feel pretty confident that they can't do worse than the current guy.

    Looks like we might be in the clear by Thursday.

    I mean they knew on Friday and didn't say anything until Sunday, which is really fucked up (edit: no, I can actually understand not sowing panic too early, tho lolz to that by Sunday). And proceeded to go about their communications in a terrible, terrible way.

    I went from "oh, hey, what's this article in the Inquirer saying they're monitoring a spill?" (at 12 noon) to getting a text at 1 to not drink the water after 3pm. That escalated....quickly.

    Solid trade to get Pache as a 4th outfielder. Can't hit for shit but great glove for late inning sub for dudes like Schwarbs and Nick.

    Can't believe the season starts tomorrow.
