Water problems this year. It seems to happen ever two to three years when you live out in the country. The well either needs to be purged, dug deeper or bugs have gotten into the wires and something got fried.
Unfortunately, this time it was all three.
Our landlord decided, since the well needs to be dug deeper that it would be cheaper to have our holding tank hooked up to the nice deep-deep well that waters the almond orchard.
Of course, that might mean we'll be without water for a couple of days. I reassured my hubby that we've toughed it out before and we could do it again.
I woke this morning to no water. I flushed the toilet with water from a bucket. Washed up with bottled water. And had a sandwich for brunch, and then brushed my teeth with more bottled water.
Love-love the good well people who dug a trench to the back forty and got it all connected. It only took a day.
We have water again.
With much belching of yucky mud, air and then white misty stuff, the water finally settled down to clear, cool water!
Lovely, lovely water.
I took a shower, which put me in a good mood for the rest of the day!
