South western Nova Scotia is experience an ongoing drought. This article highlights the struggles people are experiencing here in the village of Pubnico and the neighbouring counties.
This pictures shows what we call a fish box, which is/are filled with water every few days, (or more often depending on the size of the family). My 17 year old son works at Evan's Fresh Seafoods Evan's Fresh Seafoods here in Pubnico, which graciously lent us 2 of these boxes.
Once filled, the box is connected to a hose that runs to the bottom of our well, through a separate hose connected to our water pump. Three minute showers and doing laundry a half an hour away from home has been the norm now for 4 weeks! (Longer for others)
