Dear Louise de Guise, Public Safety and Animal Control Officer and Special Assistant to Provost Vandergrind, Dr. Pousse de Fauteuil,
Thanks for your prompt and useful response to my earlier query regarding the power outage. Sadly, the matter has grown a bit more complicated as we now are dealing with a broken water main which has paradoxically caused massive flooding in several buildings and has cut off water needed to clean up the chicken that could not be salvaged. I seem to recall that a few years ago, the Board of Trustees debated whether running water was needed on campus and various alternatives, including wells and cisterns were contemplated. The fact that not having running water on campus was even entertained is a reflection of the low priority given to the basic maintenance of campus facilities.
The flooding started just as power started back up which resulted in a new wave of power outages as shorts occurred in affected areas. Briefly, the efforts to rescue the chickens suffered a setback. What should I do now?
