Was over at the SILs house in a small town in AZ the other night. He was welding and the lights didn't dim. what kind of magic is this?

Water and power are always iffy in the rainy, but iron out in the dry. But it depends on the neighborhood. Centenario still seems to have a lot of water-free saturdays. I'm a little insulated now with the overhead tank, don't really know when the water is off unless I am taking a shower. Enacal water in my area is not safe to drink--grossly overchlorinated. Actually, it is not save to bathe with either as CL will go thru your skin.
