A typical chain of events scenario....

Eish! The wreckage does suggest a mid-air breakup, but it would really have had to be a major catastrophic failure.

I also harvested water from the airconditioner which I passed through a sand filter. Collected rainwater too, but obviously not possible in CT since there is no rain.
