I think I heard that Scotland is sending over a load of bottled water.  Why aren't there water bowsers taken to specific points that are well advertised ?  We had them them in 2007 as an aside, until now I wasn't aware that the NI floods  in 2007 were worse than ours - were there street bowsers in service then ?

I was about to say it  is bad planning but there doesn't appear to have been any planning at all , the freeze went on long enough (and the forecasts told them that anyway) for NIW to realise they would have these problems. I wonder if the CEO, Laurence MacKenzie will resign- seems to be what happens these days, don't tell me he gets a bonus ? and the other head that should roll (that's what's being called for by NI business leaders) is that of the Director of Engineering and Procurement ,Trevor Haslett
