Ok, I will try to not whine ............. Week ago Sunday I was watering everything was fine and I came in the house to wash my hands and ............. NO WATER. Called my friendly neighborhood pump guy and he came out Sunday evening and managed to get the pump switch to work. Worked fine for a week and a day until Monday night, I did manage to get it to work long enough to get everyone watered and then came in and called and left a message that I wanted the switch box replaced rather than keep dealing with a temperamental switch. Well Monday afternoon new switch box was installed and this morning as I was trying to water the flow slowed to a trickle ... so back comes the pump guy ........ pump was shorting out the switch, so back to the yard get the boom truck and come back and pull the pump, something else happened when they pulled the pump out ... so it went for a ride in the truck to be tested tonight and either brought back tomorrow or pick up a new pump.
So for tonight I will take the Kubota to the other well and fill picnic coolers and all the Arizona Ice Tea jugs I have put off taking to the recyclers to get some cold water for the critters. At least I have an alternate well. Thinking of all the others out there right now that have things so bad I am thankful for a minor inconvenience. After all I did downsize 2 weeks ago and sold 35 more sheep that I don't need to haul water to. So really like grandma taught me "Nothing is so bad it could not be worse" Just waiting for it to cool down before I go back out ........... did I mention it is only a 107 today. Holding off running the A/C til just before bedtime.
