TUSCOLA -- Grabbing a cup of coffee Monday morning wasn't easy. The town has been under a boil order since Sunday.
That meant restaurants like Denny's couldn't use city water. That meant no coffee or soda.
All dishes had to be washed with bottled water and dried by hand. And it all started right on the tail end of Sunday's lunch rush.
"It happened around 2:00, and the restaurant was full. But we've been through this recently in the last six months probably 3 or 4 times, so we've got it down," said general manager Leron Schuckman.
This is the third boil order in Tuscola since October. The city says the two last fall wouldn't normally have happened, but the city was repainting the inside of the water tower at the time.
