(Toledo News Now) -

I grew up in Cleveland and now I live in Toledo, so Lake Erie is something that was always there. 

Beautiful, bountiful, and essential - we have always had water. 

I remember when the industry flight to the warmer climates began. The old-timers used to say to me, "They'll be back.  It may be warmer, but we've got the water." 

And we have always had water. 

Then, for about 60 hours or so, we didn't. At least not water that was fit to drink, or even bathe in. The shock of this moment, this frightening reality, was nearly impossible to comprehend. We have always had water…Until we didn't. 

What we do now, what we do next may well determine whether or not we can continue to say, "We have always had water."
