How Bad Is It?

COVID-19Orlando is having to take short showers, accept brown lawns and dirty cars to try to save the people in the local hospitals with severe Covid symptoms – Orlando residents asked to limit water usage to help Covid-19 patients:

(CNN)Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer is asking residents to conserve water because liquid oxygen, used to treat the community’s water supply, is needed to treat the surge of Covid-19 patients in the community.

“Nationally, the demand for liquid oxygen is extremely high as the priority for its use is to save lives,” the mayor said in a Facebook post on Friday.

To reduce demand, the Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC) asked customers to immediately limit watering their lawns and landscapes, take short showers, repair leaking faucets and toilets, stop washing their vehicles and performing “non-critical activities” like pressure washing, the municipal utility said in a notice.

Now we will have another way of telling sane people from MAGats – the sane people will have dusty cars and burnt lawns. DeMentis will probably issue an executive order saying people don’t have reduce their water use because “FREEDOM!!!!!” 😈
