I realize we need water for the summer - couldn't You just dump a bunch in the lakes and rivers and reservoirs? Then we would have "instant" water and I wouldn't need to "shovel the water" first.
Although, maybe You looked at my hips and decided shoveling was in order - - -
Did You realize we had 6" today and it's only 5:30pm? I see another shovel job coming up around 9 pm if it continues.
