Meanwhile at my local supermarket the shelves are predictably denuded of all bottled water. This is because the local water company issued advice to boil drinking water after a processing plant was contaminated by, er, rain. Yes, some heavily chlorinated water was 'contaminated' by rain - though, in order to damp down the inevitable panic, the water company thoughtfully added that the rain was 'diluted'. Er, with what? Was this a case of Instant Water: Just add water? Truly a mad world out there.
PS: Bryan adds: And, Nige, with east coast US coming online, I think we ought to reassure our regular American readers that we'll be okay. Really. Fine. Honestly.
