They’ve been building all new housing here at our base, mostly due to a little storm you might remember back in 2005. Only recently has some of the housing been completed, and now people are moving in. This is great for the people who are getting new housing, but for those of us left in the old housing….well, things are starting to feel weird.
In the last week, they’ve told all of the enlisted population that they’ll be moving to new housing in two weeks. Also in the last week, they’ve erected ugly metal fencing to enclose the area where they’ll be doing new construction. We’re nearly surrounded by fencing now; there’s only one road of out this area. Now, to make matters worse, they’re going to be turning the gas off today. They may not be around to get the hot water heaters going again until tomorrow morning!
So think of me today and tomorrow when you’re cooking and showering with all the lovely gas and hot water you have. I’ll be sitting here. Fenced in. In a half-empty neighborhood. With no gas.
