July, 22-23, Magadan
We were preparing the next trip, while the town of Magadan was switching off its hot water supply. This is a valuable tradition of the town inhabitants to loose hot water. Every year the monopolist heating plant is switching off hot water of the entire city for 'maintenance'. June 22 was the last day with hot water. This triggered a massive hike in hot water demand, and as a result, sedimentation rate at the water supply ponds was not meeting the demand. The silt was obvious in all city
bath tubs. Now the town is 'showerless' for another 2 weeks or so.
