There is no way I am going to close my Restaurant.
I will be staying open, as I have bottled water to serve.

I live in Arizona, but have a cousin in Ames. She has been keeping me informed on your flooding. So sad and I will keep you all in my prayers. It's sad when you get more rain than you need at one time and we get 7 inches in a years time. Blessings on the great people of Iowa. I was born and raised there till I left in 1957.

Thank you Tippytoes!! We need all the prayers we can get as it seems that more problems keep arising! We were very fortunate that we didn't have to evacuate our house! We had just a bit of water in our basement; otherwise no property damage. We are very fortunate! Two not so good things....possibly no drinkable water until Tuesday and more rain tomorrow!

I wonder why resturants dont have a 'T' valve/pipe in their incoming water pipe to be able to shut off the city water and attach a hose from an external water source like a tank (with a pressure pump if necessary to normalize water pressure). Larger chains especially could have lease/rent options/agreements from water tank companies and other city water supplies regionally, and it could be maintained by the corporate safety/contingency department with very little purchased equipment.

The emergency set up could be done personally by a corporate employee certified from such operations.

It would guarantee city water outage operations for the entire chain for very little money and investment

So restaurant owners are supposed to truck in water (presumably from Story City of Nevada), put it in tank, and pump it in through a garden hose? HOw does that stay disinfected??

And with this attitude and poor grammar, I won't be visiting your restaurants.

We've been waiting a day now to find out which restaurants you own! I know a lot of people in food distribution, so I can easily find out owner's names of restaurants in Ames and if they also own in Des Moines.
