One great thing about where we live is that the water actually tastes good. In my family's city just a few miles away the water is awful. You have to have water purifiers on your tap or fridge just to make it a little drinkable. I'm not saying it's unhealthy, but it is just disgusting tasting. When my family first moved down there I got sick because I wouldn't drink the water for 2 weeks. Here we still have a filter on our fridge water dispenser, but even water out of the tap tastes fine. A big glass of yummy ice water on a hot day sure is nice.
