OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT
February 7, 2012
The disaster area has been moved from the Hopyard, where slugs consumed 15 acres of Rye in 24 hours and where Daisy and Josh were stranded by high waters for 10 days, to Newport where several weeks ago hurricane force winds tipped an empty beer truck over on the Yaquina Bay Bridge. There were no injuries but traffic was tied up on Highway 101 both ways for 3 hours. The same storm, it has now been discovered, brought in a log which hit our free range waterline under Yaquina Bay and caused major damage, leaking 600,000 gallons a day.
We have been advised by the city that residents should have a three day emergency kit including a supply of water for everyone in the family. Roughly three gallons of water a day per person. City water will be available at the city shops at NE 3rd Street. Be sure you bring your own water containers. Make sure to bring home enough water to flush your toilets. The sewer system will be working fine, but it takes water to flush toilets. Military type showers may be in order: Water on. Water off. Lather up. Water rinse. Grab towel.
Along with our South Beach neighbors, we are in conservation mode – blessed by a brewing style which utilizes a high quotient of hops and barley to water – 4oz of grain in a 12oz Dead Guy.
