Thanks for the waterless Memorial Day

Brooke RobertsWildernest

After coming back to our Wildernest home a day early from a wedding in Jackson, Wyo., my family and I awoke to no water at all for 24 hours on Memorial Day.After the first few hours of patience, we contacted our wonderful and responsive on-site property manager to discover that the Buffalo Mountain Metropolitan District was on vacation.OK, it’s Memorial Day, but what if I was a guest? I would never come back here. Obviously, we are chopped liver, they really don’t care if we went without water for 24 hours, holiday or not.After peeing in the woods ( which we can handle as locals), filling our Nalgene bottles at the local movie theater and showering with a few beers at a friend’s house, it sure would have been nice to have a phone call or flyer regarding some sort of communication, or a small attempt to fix the broken water line, holiday or not.
