Here in Hooterville we are largely immune to the normal sort of natural disaster, earthquake, wildfire, flooding, that sort of thing. But since our lives are built around hot weather, really cold turns can wreck havoc. Such was the case last week.
Our plumbing infrastructure isn't built for cold weather.
If you happened to be a plumber or sell plumbing supplies, last week was a boon to your bottom line. Something on the order of 20,000 Hooterville homes suffered cold-related plumbing failures.
In our little hardware store, we sold out of everything pipe-related and could have sold three times what we had in stock. We did two weeks worth of business in three days.
More work for the lowly hardware man and more moolah for the people at the top.
