    Husband and I have been planning how to "cope." The plan so far is, to fill the tub with water at night, so it might be about room temp by morning. Then add some boiled water from the stove. But that's a bath for one. So, repeat same during day, and the other person gets their bath in the evening.

    Also, planning on fillling those 5 liter water bottles and placing them on the balcony in the sunshine to get warm.

    Warm, or room temp, has got to be better than ice cold out of the faucet.

    The best thing to do is to go to the fitness club in the morning. Second, is go to the Banya during this time. This is what most Russian do.

    ...that only works if you belong to a fitness club. Also, it seems somewhat cumbersome to have to leave your home on a daily basis for bathing purposes.

    I only thought this was for a few days, not ? I live in a really old apartment and the system here is better. You actually light the furnace in the morning and you get hot water regardless of what the city has. I shut off the gas to the furnace when I am done.

    I've heard that it's for 3 weeks. Lucky you that you don't run out of hot water. Maybe we'll all come to your place to shower!!

    Well I live quite far otherwise I would have said go for it !!! I dont even shower at my place, I go the fitness club near work and shower there. I think if I move from here to another apartment I should plan my annual holiday around this time to avoid dealing with the shower issue.


    Yes she is beautiful.
    I have two huge ones, a Great Pyrenees and a tall American Lab. Athletic ones and thats why I cant live near my place of work and have to live hear parks or trails.
