Talked with Sue before heading back out to more food-collection work. She says the burned teenager has a bad fever. It's infections.

We're down two pickers today (they're family members of the burned teenager), but the rest of us are working quickly. Many bushels of fruit.

We found a fence covered with grape vines near a mapped plum tree. The grapes will make good juice. Maybe someone will make wine some day...

...But for now, food has to take priority over alcohol, at least until the zombie danger eases. Some people have made an exception for beer.

As a beer drinker, I can't blame them. Besides, they used supplies salvaged from brewing supply stores to make the beer, not fresh fruit.

@mattress We have a variety of water sources. I rely on my own well. The pump is powered by my solar array.

@mattress We sit on one of the largest fresh water aquifers on the planet here, so we are lucky. Pumps/wells all over. All we need is power.

There is now a bedside vigil for the burned teenager in Sue's infirmary. She thinks he'll die if his fever doesn't break soon. #zompocalypse
