Sunward Cohousing, our neighbor to the North, wanted to “liberate” some ex-members who had defected (opted to move to) to Great Oak. They decided to launch a water balloon assault…(the refrigerator boxes in the truck were not what they appeared — click on the image for more photos):
Sneakily, some Sunwardians snuck into Great Oak in the early morning and added flow-restrictors to all the hoses, which limited the retaliatory options! Sunward’s General, George, was captured late in the battle, but unfortunately at the cost of Jillian, an ex-Sunwardian being kidnapped. An amicable swap, followed by a BBQ well-attend by both communities served to patch up differences…till next year!
Here’s a video of the mayhem:
